Renter Rights 101 March 14, 2023
In this workshop, Colorado Legal Services attorney Clinton Albert will help participants learn about a wide variety of topics such as lease basics, reasonable accommodations and modifications, deposits, repairs, eviction, and updates on recent Colorado legislation on housing matters. Other community legal and housing resources will be shared.
“Renters can prevent a conflict from becoming an eviction by knowing their rights and responsibilities, which will be covered in this free class.,” said Barb Van Hoy, Colorado Springs Community Development Division policy analyst.
Colorado Legal Services is a nonprofit organization helping low-income individuals and seniors in Colorado. The workshop will offer general information for tenants and cannot provide specific legal advice. Low-income residents or senior citizens facing a housing issue can contact Colorado Legal Services at (719) 471-0380 for legal assistance.
