Defending Tenants’ Rights
If you are way behind on your rent or if you are in obvious violation of your rental agreement, landlords have the legal right to evict you. In these circumstances, it is difficult to stop eviction. However, you still have rights regarding notice of eviction, landlord retaliation, access to the property, utilities and possession of your personal property.
Furthermore, the federal Fair Housing Act prohibits your landlord from evicting you on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability or family status.
