Building Blocks of Landlord Tenant Mediation: A Toolkit for Developing a Local Program
The relationships between tenants and landlords can seem adversarial and crisis experienced by either can add tension to this relationship. But the reality is that tenants and landlords need each other to be successful. And our schools, local business and neighborhoods also need both landlords and tenants to be successful.
The Housing Alliance of Pennsylvania supports community efforts to build or expand mediation programs to stabilize renter households and prevent evictions. This effort is especially important and timely due to concerns that waning COVID-19 relief funding and exploding rents will result in pushing the eviction crisis past where it was pre-pandemic.
