Student Legal Services can counsel students on many types of landlord/tenant matters and, in some situations, can be hired to represent students on those matters.
Some of the landlord/tenant issues we can help with include:
- Apartment repairs
- Warranty of Habitability
- Lease review
- Eviction proceedings
- Security deposit disputes
Note that we cannot always give advice to or represent students on their landlord/tenant issues. See our limitations on services page for more information.
Landlord-Tenant consultations with Student Legal Services are free. Student Legal Services can also help students by communicating with your landlord or by litigating in court on your behalf for a modest fee. Off-Campus Housing and Neighborhood Relations also has a part-time attorney on staff who can review leases before you sign, and answer basic landlord/tenant questions at no cost.
