Saturday, April 22, 1 p.m.
“The Renters Alliance is working with reporters, elected officials and landlords to keep them and the wider county informed about renter issues. Often we get faces of disbelief when we tell stories about the challenges renters face, whether it be rents many times more than the county voluntary guidelines, or about abusive landlords who target renters with high rents or eviction because they simply demand a clean building or promised services. And we also want to know about those landlords who get it right and should be held up for their best practices, like keeping rents and rent increases reasonable and being responsive to their renter community. Tell us your story. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with “My Story” in the subject line. And please let us know as much about you as you can tell us so we can get back to you.”
In addition to the dialogue on rent stabilization, Renters Alliance staff will be joined by Office of Landlord and Tenant Affairs Manager Nicolle Katrivanos, and KaShamba Williams, Program Manager and supervisor of the multi-family team at the Department of Housing and Community Affairs.
Join us for another lively and informative town hall. Register HERE.
Rents throughout Montgomery County have been skyrocketing. If you have received a rent increase more than 4.4%, we encourage you to send us a copy of the renewal notice. We are working with county officials to provide examples of these increases. The County Council is considering rent stabilization bills to address excessive rent increases in the coming weeks and renters receiving these increases are urged to provide examples.
