Resources for Landlords and Tenants

Dispute resolution services help you choose the outcome that works for you. Professionally trained mediators and conciliators support all participants in working together to brainstorm ideas and evaluate options to come to a solution.

Check with your local DRC about free or affordable conflict resolution services to resolve many types of housing issues outside of court. Read more about our housing dispute resolution services.


Note: The Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP) ended by state statute as of July 1, 2023. The ERPP brought tenants with rent owed and landlords together to try to resolve issues by accessing mediation and conciliation, resources, and legal aid.
