Learn your Rights as a Tenant! October Tenants Assembly with BTU @ Roosevelt Resource Center

Does your management company respond to your emergency maintenance requests with duct tape and a dismissive shrug of their shoulders?

Is your landlord dragging their feet on fixing that leaking pipe? Never getting back to you about that patch of black mold growing on your floor?

It doesn’t have to be that way. And we can show you how.

This Thursday, October 17th at 6:00pm, join your fellow renters in the Bellingham Tenants Union as we educate ourselves on the maintenance-based nitty gritty of our fundamental human right to safe, secure housing!

We’ll learn how to use code compliance requests to protect our health and safety, how to get our full deposit back (and not just a partial one with $25 lightbulb fees!), and how to succeed (and win) with real-world examples from our own BTU members!

This month will be joined by a City of Bellingham Code Compliance officer, an employee of the Rental Registration department and a housing advocate to offer their expertise on their respective subjects. We’d love to see you there!
