How mediation solves disputes, including between landlords and renters

Disputes between landlords and renters typically end up in front of judge and can result in an eviction. Instead of going to court, some landlords and renters are turning towards mediation to find a solution that will keep tenants in their homes while making sure property owners get paid.
