Basics of Landlord Tenant Law

Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada presents a program on the basics of landlord tenant law. James Berchtold and Hon. Melissa Saragosa will examine evictions, special considerations (such as mobile home parks), post-foreclosure evictions, public/subsidized housing and other landlord-tenant issues. This is an area where the need for legal services has become very apparent and is in high demand. 


Attendance is free, but attendees must either volunteer for at least two shifts with the Landlord Tenant Ask-A-Lawyer Program at the Civil Law Self-Help Center, or take a new pro bono case.
