Tenant Advocacy

The Tenant Advocacy program allows Maryland tenants to receive free information about tenant rights and responsibilities, and individual rental issues such as:

  • Lead paint
  • Rent Escrow
  • Security Deposits
  • Denial of Essential Services (heat, water, stove, etc.)
  • Code Enforcement
  • Nonpayment of Rent (Please note: We do not provide direct financial assistance.)
  • Eviction Prevention

We also provide in-depth assistance with individual tenants, either through reaching an equitable agreement between the tenant and landlord, or through legal enforcement/referrals to legal service providers. If you are a tenant and have a housing question about the above topics, or need our help with a rental or landlord issue, please fill out this form.

If you need in-depth help for your tenant association, we conduct workshops and outreach events for tenants and landlords who are concerned about tenants’ rights. These events are free to neighborhood/community associations. Government agencies and businesses should contact us for tailored presentations and fee schedule.
