    PROGRAM OVERVIEW

    With many landlords and tenants hit hard by impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, King County is expecting to face a large number of eviction cases after state and federal moratoria on evictions are lifted. In hopes of reducing the severity of a wave of evictions in the community, the King County Superior Court has established an Eviction Resolution Program (ERP) that will require problem solving steps in situations involving non-payment of rent so that there will be no need to file an eviction case.

    The goal of the program is to bring all parties together with trained resolution specialists to explore solutions such as available state and local rental assistance, or achievable payment plans that could help tenants retain their housing and divert many situations from the legal eviction process. The program was developed by the state Superior Court Judges’ Association (SCJA) in partnership with the state Office of Civil Legal Aid.

    The objective of the ERP is to:

    Bring all parties to the table with the assistance of qualified and trained Eviction Resolution Specialists;
    Explore the amount of rent arrears, the current and prospective circumstances of the tenant, the availability of rent and other assistance to cure or partially cure the arrearage;
    Discover a range of other terms that might resolve the matter in a way that allows the tenant to retain housing (and avoid the need for filing of an unlawful detainer action)
