Landlord/Tenant University is Aug. 6

Post Date:07/27/2020 3:49 PM



Representatives from our Neighborhoods and Housing Services Department and facilitators from Legal Aid of Western Missouri are holding the first session of Landlord/Tenant University on Thursday, Aug. 6 from 11 a.m. to noon at the KC Kings Conference Room, 4400 Blue Pkwy. Because of Covid-19 concerns, in-person seating is limited, but the training session will also be streamed via Zoom videoconferencing.

This groundbreaking initiative will provide invaluable information to renters and landlords alike.

“The university will focus on a myriad of housing and neighborhood issues including fair housing practices, housing code enforcement, the Healthy Homes Initiative, plus other common neighborhood concerns like illegal dumping,” said Shawn Kirkwood, university coordinator. “During this initial session of Landlord/Tenant University, much of the emphasis will be on the newly-formed Tenant Bill of Rights and what it means to both landlords and tenants.”

If you want to attend in person, please RSVP via Eventbrite. Anyone interested in attending online or needing more information should contact Leranda Brewer by email or at (816) 513-9024. Media can contact Shawn Kirkwood, Landlord/Tenant University Coordinator at (816) 513-9054.
