Amy Carpenter, Neighborhood Legal Services Association
Entering into a lease as a renter is a very common part of the graduate student experience, but knowing and understanding your rights as a tenant and your landlord’s obligations and understanding the legal agreement you have entered can be difficult and time consuming.  Information will be provided about your legal obligations as a renter, your landlord's legal obligations, what to do and expect when repairs need to be made or one party is not abiding by the lease, and what to do for help with housing issues.  
Please register so we can plan accordingly.  Partners and families are welcome to attend session.  Please share the registration link with any guests you wish to invite.
