Join Como’s landlord or tenant workshops
District 10 is partnering with HOME Line to offer tenant and landlord workshops in June. The workshops are free, but registration is required. Sign up at district10comopark.org/rental_workshops.html.
The tenant workshop, scheduled for Thursday, June 2, 5-6:30 p.m., will focus on the three biggest sources of renter complaints: repairs, evictions and security deposits.
The landlord workshop is designed for property owners and managers, whether you rent out a single-family home or multiple units. Topics will include the application process, discrimination and fair-housing issues, repairs, bedbugs, evictions and requirements about when a landlord can or cannot enter the living space. The landlord workshop will be held Tuesday, June 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m.
Both workshops will be held at the Como Park Streetcar Station, at the northeast corner of Lexington Parkway and Horton Avenue.
ComoFest will happen all month-long
