Pilot Program (ERPP)
The ERPP team works with both landlords, tenants, and their legal counsel to resolve any issues including but not limited to back rent issues that may cause an eviction once the moratorium has expired.
This program was created by the Unlawful Detainer Workgroup which included members of the Superior Court Judges Association, landlord representatives, tenant advocates, the Administration Office of the Courts, the Office of Civil Legal Aid and Resolution Washington, the statewide association of dispute resolution centers (DRC).
The goal of the program is to ensure landlords and tenants are connected to rent assistance, legal counsel and have an opportunity at mediation or meet and confer to resolve the housing conflicts prior to filing an unlawful detainer which may result in an eviction.
To access the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program, the landlord must complete the ERPP Notice and the 14 day Pay-or-Vacate Notice and send both forms to the DRC at the time of service or mailing on the tenant.
Once complete forms are received, the DRC will work to engage the tenant for access to rent assistance and legal counsel before scheduling a Mediation or Meet-and-Confer for pre-filing resolution. If a tenant does not respond in 14 days or refuses services, the DRC will issue a certificate that allows the unlawful detainer filing to occur. DRC will provide direct referral to legal resources so counsel may be obtained prior to appearing in court.
The DRCs have highly skilled mediators and Eviction Resolution Specialists to guide people through multiple opportunities to resolve the case before an unlawful detainer is filed. This program is free for both landlords and tenants.
