Eviction Defense 2.0: Challenging Issues Facing Older Tenants At Risk of Eviction

When: Wednesday, October 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET.

Older tenants who are facing financial, cognitive, and other challenges are at heightened risk for eviction and displacement. This advanced webcast training will cover the relevant legal authority for combating evictions.

The presenter will also share:

  • Information on using reasonable accommodations as a tool to combat evictions, with a particular focus on the challenges faced by older tenants.
  • Guidance for advocates to address challenging scenarios involving hoarding and tenants alleged to be a direct threat to other tenants and the property. 
  • Hypothetical examples of combating evictions.

This is NCLER’s second training on assisting older tenants facing eviction, and builds on last year's training, Legal Basics: Helping Older Tenants Remain at Home. Read the Chapter Summary and watch the recording.

Presenters: Kara Brodfuehrer, Staff Attorney, National Housing Law Project

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

NOTE: This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you.
