Content

“Navigating the Landlord-Tenant Relationship” was presented in October 2021 to educate and inform residents who own or rent properties throughout Howard County. The virtual forum featured a panel of experts from Howard County Government and community partners to address issues which affect  both landlords and tenants, including landlord/tenant laws, eviction prevention, discriminatory practices, housing voucher programs, and the responsibilities of tenants and landlords.
