Read the transcript

Over the past couple years, there has been a tremendous amount of attention on renters through initiatives like emergency rental assistance and eviction moratoriums, and we’ve seen increasing focus on landlord-tenant relations. In our latest podcast, Corey and Steve are joined by Shamus Roller, Executive Director of the National Housing Law Project, who has a long history of working on these issues. Together they discuss what obligations landlords and tenants have to each other and look at how this relationship is captured and expressed in housing law. It’s a nuanced story that’s different all over the country, and one that continues to evolve.
