The Tenant Landlord Connection, a program of One Roof Community Housing, is presenting a series of free workshops to help area landlords better understand their rights and responsibilities.

***Covid-19 Update***

All landlord workshops will be offered online until further notice.

Section 8 Voucher Workshop for Landlords : Thursday, March 11th

12:00-1:00pm via Zoom

Have you considered accepting Section 8 vouchers but have questions as to what that entails? Or do you already accept Section 8 and have questions? If you answered yes to either of those questions, this workshop is for you! During this workshop, Rachel Downs, Rent Subsidy Supervisor at Duluth HRA, will provide an overview of the Section 8 program, as well as details on the lease-up process, inspection requirements, and tenant obligations.

Duluth Rental Licensing Workshop: Tuesday, March 30th                       

12:00-1:00pm via Zoom

Representatives from the City of Duluth’s Life Safety Department will be reviewing local rental license code requirements, particularly with regard to property maintenance and upkeep. They will also review the inspection process, as well as what happens if a tenant files a complaint with the Life Safety Office.

Mediation & Conflict Resolution:
In addition to offering workshops, we also offer one-on-one education for landlords and tenants when questions arise regarding rights or responsibilities, as well as free mediation services to help resolve a landlord-tenant conflict or dispute. The Tenant Landlord Connection is a neutral resource and does not advocate for either side or provide either party with legal advice. Our goal is to help landlords and tenants avoid costly court actions by facilitating a mutually beneficial agreement through mediation. Topics re-solved through mediation include non-payment of rent, lease violations, mutual termination of the lease agreement, and much more! For more information about our mediation services, please contact the Tenant Landlord Connection at 218-727-5372 or tcarlson@1roofhousing.org.
