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.  If you would like to be included on an email distribution list to receive general information announcements, including but not limited to future training opportunities, please join the RSO email list here.
