Rent Smart is a FREE program that provides practical education to help people looking for rental housing find, get, and keep suitable housing. This program focuses on the knowledge and skills essential for a successful renting experience. It challenges participants to know and understand their rights and responsibilities as a tenant, as well as know and understand the rights and responsibilities of their landlord. Emphasis is on forming a strong landlord-tenant partnership. Rent Smart starts participants on the right path for successfully establishing a positive rental history.
Completion of the course provides you with a certificate to show your commitment to being a good tenant. Each Rent Smart workshop consists of 2 sessions, and participants must attend both sessions to receive the certificate of completion. Registration is required and due one week prior to the start of the workshops. There is a minimum number of registered participants required in order to run this workshop. If the minimum requirement is not met by the registration deadline, the workshop will be cancelled and all registered participants will be notified.
