Attorney General TJ Donovan announced that members of his Environmental Protection Division will be presenting on Vermont’s rental housing laws at the Upper Valley Haven in White River Junction on Thursday, June 15th. The presentation is expected to provide a broad overview of existing resources available to Vermont renters and tips on common tenant issues, including rental applications, leases, and Vermont’s lead paint law.

“We’ve heard the call for more education on rental housing and how to be a good tenant,” said Attorney General Donovan. “My team is excited to visit the Haven and help meet some of those needs.”

The Upper Valley Haven is a non-profit, private organization that serves individuals struggling with poverty by providing food, shelter, education, service coordination, and other support.

The presentation by the Attorney General’s Office will begin at 4 p.m. and will last approximately an hour and a half.
