COVID-19 Eviction Workshop for Landlords: This workshop was recorded in April of 2020 and is available to the public. To access this recording, please contact Jackie Kemp at: jkemp@1roofhousing.org

Workshop Description:

Join us as we review the eviction moratoriums put in place by Governor Walz and the federal CARES Act, including the differences between the two mandates/moratoriums as well as what they mean for local landlords. This workshop will be led by Legal Aid attorney Gwen Updegraff and we will also discuss local resources for tenants who are having difficulty paying their rent.

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.
