Your Rights

Protection from "unjust" evictions

Unfortunately you won't get eviction protection until everyone you live with has there for 1 year, or at least one person you live with has been there for 2 years.

Limited rent increases

Congratulations we think it is likely your landlord can't legally increase your rent more than a set amount each year based on your current rent and where you live.

Remember these aren't your only rights as a tenant, just the ones covered by the Tenant Protection Act. If you are in doubt, or worried about your living situation reach out to your local city or county government for support, or a local tenants rights group. We can connect you with them below.
