About this event

Nearly all of us will be tenants at some point, but almost none of us know even basic information about a tenant’s rights and the laws that protect us as renters. This class walks through the life of a tenancy from beginning to end and gives you the tools you need to protect yourself. It covers:

  • Legal issues you might face when looking for a new apartment, including signing a lease and paying a security deposit;
  • Legal problems that can arise after you move in, like getting repairs made or needing to terminate the lease early;
  • Legal issues that happen at move out, such as fighting eviction and recovering security deposits; and
  • Much more!

The class is offered both in-person at Legal Aid Center and online through Zoom (be sure to check the bottom of your emails from Eventbrite for the online meeting link).

In addition to this class, we also offer a free Eviction Sealing clinic, which can improve your chances of finding new housing after being evicted. Click here for details.

About the organizer

Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada is a private, non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that ensures equal access to justice through free legal advice and representation for those who cannot afford to hire an attorney.

We are the primary legal safety net that changes the lives of low-income, vulnerable people in our community every day. Since 1958, our organization has represented low-income individuals in Clark County with civil legal matters such as domestic violence, fraud against the elderly, representing youth in the child welfare system, and defending working people against scams and financial predators. We become the voice for those who cannot speak for themselves in important legal matters that affect their well-being, their future, and even their ability to survive. The cases accepted are based on merit and highest need—victims of domestic violence, children, the elderly, victims of financial predators, active military, and veterans.
