Webinar-Defending an Eviction Case for Older Tenants

The National Center on Law & Elder Rights is offering a free webinar on August 14, 2018 at 2 edt on  Legal Skills-Eviction Defense-Helping Older Tenants Remain at Home.

Here's a description of the webinar:

 

More older adults are choosing to rent, rather than purchase homes. Older tenants are particularly at risk of eviction due to unaffordable rent increases, or retaliation for complaints regarding code violations. Moreover, as adults age, landlords may be reluctant to make reasonable accommodations for tenants with disabilities.  Affordable housing is an important option for older renters, as it may offer reduced barriers and helpful amenities, but older adults may face other challenges preserving their tenancies in such housing.

This legal basics webcast will present a general overview of the tenants’ rights, examine one state’s process, and discuss defenses to eviction and other effective strategies to counter displacement.
