Mediation: One Tool to Resolve Disputes over Smoking

Are you having disputes with tenants over smoking issues? Are tenants having disputes over exposure to secondhand smoke or other issues?

Mediation may help you and/or your tenants resolve these problems. A mediator acts as an impartial party to help the disputing parties negotiate a mutually beneficial resolution based on their specific situation.

Professional mediators may be for-profit, for-hire or they may be offering their services for free. There are a number of complimentary community-based mediation services across the state. In Oregon, visit the website of the Oregon Mediation Association and click on "find a mediator."
