Housing cases accepted are those involving the acquisition, preservation or access to housing for homestead and shelter. The majority of our housing cases involve assistance to tenants in eviction cases, whether by private landlords or under programs involving public assistance (Section 8 vouchers, public housing, or private subsidized housing.) We also provide legal advice for tenants on appropriate ways to seek repairs from landlords, challenge claims on security deposits, and get redress for illegal “self-help” evictions by landlords.
For homeowners, Three Rivers can help in defense of foreclosure actions, particularly where the mortgage holder has engaged in unfair lending practices.
Housing experts from Three Rivers are always available to speak to groups interested in learning their rights as tenants or homeowners.
