Important Message

As with any area of the law, landlord-tenant law is complex and nuanced. The free training sessions funded by the Rental Services Office provide a general overview of basic information relating to the specified topic. They are not designed or intended to provide a rental housing provider with everything they need to know to engage in the business of renting residential property, nor do they serve to replace professional legal advice relating to a specific issue or situation.

Rental Services Office staff can provide the names and contact information of community partners and organizations that provide more in-depth training and/or legal services.

Additional free training sessions will be offered as resources permit.
