University of Strathclyde to host ‘Mock Housing Mediation’

The Mediation Clinic at the University of Strathclyde is extending invitations to observe a ‘Mock Housing Mediation’ next week.

Mediation makes particular sense for housing matters. Cost-effective, efficient, and pragmatic, it is less damaging to relationships than formal action. The consensual approach means agreements are more likely to be fulfilled, reducing the risk of eviction.

The webinar event on June 16 at 11am will demonstrate how a mediation session works and will focus on a “typical” tenant/landlord housing case within the Private Rented Sector.

Participants will be able to observe how two mediators along with two parties attempt to guide the parties to resolution.

The event could be particularly useful to tenants, landlords, letting agents as well as those working within organisations that deal with issues such as repairs, rent arrears, deposits, communication, and general tenant/landlord issues.

Charlie Irvine, the director of the Mediation Clinic, will facilitate the session.

This event is free but registration is required. A link will be emailed to all participants nearer the time of the event.

If you have any questions, please contact: Pauline McKay, housing mediation project development worker:
