Summary:

Older tenants who are facing financial, cognitive, and other challenges are at heightened risk for eviction and displacement. This advanced webcast training will cover the relevant legal authority for combating evictions.

The presenter will also share:
• Information on using reasonable accommodations as a tool to combat evictions, with a particular focus on the challenges faced by older tenants.
• Guidance for advocates to address challenging scenarios involving hoarding and tenants alleged to be a direct threat to other tenants and the property.
• Hypothetical examples of combating evictions.

This is NCLER’s second training on assisting older tenants facing eviction, and builds on last year’s training, Legal Basics: Helping Older Tenants Remain at Home.
