Information for Prospective Landlord and Tenant Mediators
- The Landlord and Tenant Mediation Program provides mediation services to disputing parties in cases filed in the Superior Court's Landlord and Tenant Branch. These cases must be based on a claim for possession of the rental property, but they may also involve unpaid rent, complaints about living conditions, security deposit refunds or other rent or lease-related disputes.
- Mediators help parties discuss options to resolve their dispute and, whenever possible, write an agreement that settles the case without a trial. All mediation agreements are reviewed by the judge before they become final.
- Landlord and Tenant Court holds hearings Monday through Friday. Mediations occur the day of, and often in lieu of, a trial. Both parties must agree to mediation. However, mediation becomes mandatory if either party requests a jury trial.
- Landlord & Tenant mediators schedule to be on stand-by to mediate either from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Mediators handle cases solo after completing training and mentoring sessions with a co-mediator.
