Mediating landlord-tenant issues can help in a lot of ways.  Mediation provides:

  • Impartial Facilitation, where both landlords and tenants are supported and listened to respectfully, whether in a room together or individually. Mediators serve as neutral guides helping the parties craft their own durable solution to housing conflicts;
  • Confidentiality, where a safe space is created to empower parties to reach solutions that are comprehensive and lasting; and
  • Opportunities, where people are invited to participate, listen and share, and where arguments can be recast as opportunities to understand different points of view.

These services are open to people involved in rental housing disputes that arise at any time: before or after eviction filings.  By offering free, compassionate and respectful mediation, Six Rivers gets workable solutions to problems facing landlords and tenants.  If you are wondering whether you might benefit from these services, please call.  We want to help as soon as we can – so we say,
