As provided in RCW 59.18.660(9), the Eviction Resolution Pilot Program (ERPP) expired statewide on July 1, 2023.
Beginning on July 1, 2023, landlords are no longer required to provide tenants with an ERPP Notice before bringing an eviction (unlawful detainer) case for nonpayment of rent in Superior Court. The Bellevue Conflict Resolution Center (BCRC) encourages tenants and landlords to consult legal counsel as soon as possible regarding evictions based on unpaid rent. More information about legal services is available on our Eviction Resolution website.
The BCRC offers free negotiation services to help residents of Bellevue and Kirkland resolve many types of conflicts, including non-rent related housing disputes. These services are not part of the ERPP and are voluntary—all parties must choose to participate. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 425-452-4091 to discuss how we may be able to help. Interpretation services are available.
If you are faced with a conflict and need some help with it, the Bellevue Conflict Resolution Center may be able to help you. Many people who work or live in Bellevue call us to help them resolve their conflicts through free and confidential services.
Due to COVID-19, staff and volunteers are teleworking. While we monitor our voicemail and email closely, it is likely that you will need to leave a message and wait to be contacted. We still very much want to hear from you, and we thank you for your patience in this difficult time.
The Bellevue Conflict Resolution Center is a dispute resolution center formed under Chapter 7.75 of the Revised Code of Washington.
