Staying Afloat: Assisting Tenants with Water Bills

January 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

This webinar will focus on the issues tenants in Baltimore face with water bills. Currently, tenants cannot be account holders, so they have no access to their water bills or water bill history, and they cannot dispute bills or request adjustments themselves. These barriers open the door to wide potential for abuse by landlords, which manifests in eviction proceedings and post move-out collection actions. Advocates from the Public Justice Center and the Legal Aid Bureau of Maryland will join MVLS to discuss this important issue, strategies for helping tenants, and what we can do to make positive change in this area.  Register.
