Introduction to mediation techniques for letting agents

The aim of this online workshop is to support agents in their “mediating role ” between private landlords and tenants and is delivered by Scottish Mediation. After looking at conflict and how it escalates this workshop moves on to demonstrate how skills and techniques used in mediation can help agents to effectively manage relationships between landlords and tenants in the private rented sector.

The session considers how best to manage and resolve conflict with a view to avoiding costly and time-consuming disputes, tenancies ending prematurely, deposit disputes, and cases being referred to the Housing and Property Chamber of the First Tier Tribunal.

At the end of the workshop you will be able to –

  • Understand some of the causes of conflict and how it escalates
  • Use a number of tools used in mediation to resolve conflict
  • Understand the benefits of mediation and how to access it

The workshop is delivered on Zoom and enables participation and sharing of experiences.

Qualified letting agents can record this as 3 hours towards required training in line with Letting Agent Registration regulations
