In 2011, Alteba management developed an innovative method designed to better tackle the new housing and real estate realities that had come about across communities as a consequence of the crisis experienced at the heart of financial institutions and that impacted many businesses. The VIVIREMOS project. The key goal behind the creation of this methodology was to strive for solutions between irregular dwellers (owners, tenants or settlers) and the legitimate owners of the properties, through mediation, identifying potential vulnerability factors to which different housing alternatives could be offered as a solution, and generally trying to avoid legal proceedings, through mediated agreements with an end goal of peaceful eviction processes from the properties in question. The primary objective is to repossess rightful property or formalise agreements on how this can be achieved, while continuing to protect the SOCIAL REPUTATION of the landlord or owner.
Viviremos (“We will live on” in Spanish) is fully aware of the impossibility of managing conflicts that occur around housing issues without a global and specific understanding of the social indicators that take place in each individual situation, which cannot be separated from the resolution of the problem itself, as they are an inherent part and often the cause/effect of the problem itself. It’s with this in mind that we have created a large multidisciplinary work team made up of social professionals with backgrounds in Social Work, Social Education, Psychology, as well as professionals in Law, Communication, Real Estate Asset Management, etc. who share a common interest in studying issues around housing in order to find the most beneficial alternative that satisfies all parties involved.
SINCE ITS LAUNCH, MORE THAN 30,000 INTERVENTIONS CENTRED ON MEDIATION, CONFLICT RESOLUTION AND REMEDYING HAVE BEEN CONDUCTED ACROSS MULTIPLE CLIENT PROPERTY ASSETS.
VIVIREMOS provides help and support in order for affected families and landlords to UNDERSTAND each other by engaging in real communication to seek better strategies to resolve problems.
