State and local laws designed to protect tenants are often ignored or deliberately violated by landlords. Tenants frequently do not know how to assert their legal rights. Participants in this workshop learn what their rights are with respect to such issues as:
- Rent increases
- Health code violations
- Lead paint
Participants also discuss strategies for tenants to organize effectively and to assert their rights.
Sometimes small landlords attend this clinic and learn their obligations as landlords under Massachusetts law.
