The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is partnering with the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and The Ke’nekt to host Your Rights as a Renter and How to Find Help When You Need It Fast.

Topics will include eviction defense, a landlord’s duty to repair, Georgia’s new landlord retaliation statute, and more. Following the presentation, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions. There may also be an opportunity for brief one-on-one consultations with the attorney to discuss specific issues.

  • All attendees will be entered into a drawing to win a free fitness watch and Amazon Fire tablet. Prizes to be awarded at the workshop.
