Resources

Have you seen our fliers? Each flier comes with information about tenants rights, historical figures, or housing facts. Our first flier contains information about the tenants’ right to repairs, which includes damp walls, leaks, peeling paint, mold, pests, broken windows, unsafe stairways, defective electrical systems, and more.

Sample Letters

The best way to communicate with your landlord is in writing through certified mail. We have dozens of letter templates regarding all tenants rights issues. Our counselors can help you write and format your letter using the appropriate civil codes & with the proper documentation.
