Program Description

The Tenant Advocacy program allows Maryland tenants to receive free information about tenant rights and responsibilities, and help with 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 code enforcement, referrals to legal service providers, or referrals to other agencies or organizations that could be of assistance."
