Federal and state fair housing laws protect tenants with disabilities from discrimination, including evictions when the landlord fails to reasonably accommodate the tenant’s disabilities. Tenants with disabilities are often accused of breaching their lease for conduct tied to their physical or mental disabilities, and those tenants may have a defense to avoid eviction. Experienced housing attorneys from Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid in Minneapolis will share about the use of Reasonable Accommodations on behalf of tenants with disabilities in defending eviction. This training will provide an overview of the relevant laws and practical recommendations for volunteer attorneys representing tenants in this context.
