San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Are you interested in sharing ownership of housing? Do you see yourself living in housing that you co-own with others? Shared housing attorney and Executive Director of the Sustainable Economies Law Center, Janelle Orsi, will lead a discussion about some of the key legal questions that groups often have when embarking on creating shared housing structures, including the basics of co-housing, co-op housing, limited equity housing cooperatives (LEHCs) and tenancy in common agreements. Come with your questions and ideas to share!
The Regularly scheduled Resilient Communities Legal Cafe will also be happening this evening from 6 to 8:30 pm. Come for either or both!
SELC is a grassroots organization supported by small contributions from people like you.
When & Where
Hosted by the Sustainable Economies Law Center
The Sustainable Economies Law Center (SELC) charts the changing legal territory of the new economy, educating communities and individuals about the possibilities and limits of creative economic structures, and advocating for laws that clear the way for more sustainable economic development. SELC provides essential legal tools — education, research, advice, and advocacy — to support this transition to localized, resilient economies. Our work focuses on practices that promote justice and sharing, including cooperatives, community currencies, community-supported enterprises, local investing, cohousing, urban agriculture, community renewable energy, and other innovative economic strategies.
