Community Housing Clinic
What: The Office of Housing Stability’s Community Housing Clinic is a tremendous resource for residents — tenants and landlords — to talk one-on-one with a housing professional about landlord-tenant laws, learn how to access affordable housing opportunities and discover housing resources available to landlords and tenants. Tenants can learn about their rights if their building is sold, their rents are rising or they’re facing eviction. Landlords can get information on enforcing lease provisions, cost-effective resources to resolve disputes and programs to support home repairs and maintenance.
When: Every Thursday 5:00 – 7:00 PM
Where: 26 Court Street Boston, MA 02108
More Info: Please call 617-635-4200 or email
