Using the Eviction Resolution Program

The New Process for Nonpayment of Rent

Back to Events
Wednesday, June 30, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM (PDT)
Online Only

Event Details

New Washington State law requires that prior to any eviction based on nonpayment of rent, the landlord and tenant must attempt to resolve the issue by participating in the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program administered through local area Dispute Resolution Centers. The plan for this new program is that Eviction Resolution Specialists will work with housing providers and tenants to discuss the rent arrears and circumstances of the tenant, the availability of assistance funds, and explore other terms that might resolve the matter without the need for filing of an unlawful detainer action. Attorney, Maxwell Glasson will explain the new process and provide best practices for resolving tenant debt under the new laws.

This session is offered ONLINE only. After class, all participants will receive a link to recorded session (accessible for 30 days) and downloadable materials for review.
