Rental Housing Mediation Program


The Rental Housing Mediation Program (RHMP) was established in 1976 out of a "Grass Roots" effort to resolve Landlord/Tenant disputes.

The RHMP comprises three full-time Staff and a Board of fifteen trained community volunteers appointed by the Santa Barbara City Council and dedicated to resolving rental housing disputes by offering mediation services and information on Landlord-Tenant rights and responsibilities.
