This month, Homestead CS, a non-profit housing counseling agency, is putting on a series tenants’ rights workshop. The first session is tomorrow, July 14, 2015.
In HomesteadCS’ Tenants Know Your Rights Workshops, tenants will learn about their rights and responsibilities, such as:
- what their landlords can and can’t do to them,
- what protections they have according to the Fair Housing Act,
- how to file official complaints with the city,
- how the eviction process works,
- how to protect their security deposit,
- and more.
Six of these workshops will be held in the last three weeks of July in various communities in GLA to hopefully provide tenants with a date and location that is easily accessible.
TUESDAY, JULY 14th // 5:30pm // West Lafayette Public Library // 208 W Columbia St.
Co-hosted with Purdue Student Legal Services. This will be the ONLY workshop with an attorney present but she WILL NOT be giving legal advice about specific legal questions. None of the workshops are for legal counseling, rather they are general education about tenants’ rights and responsibilities
