Powell and Abney to host landlord and tenant rights panel

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 29 – State Reps. Lindsay Powell and Aerion Abney, both D-Allegheny, will hold a landlord and tenant legal rights panel on Thursday, March 7 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Tripoli Street Community Center.

“Fair and equitable housing is a right every neighbor should be able to acquire,” Powell said. “I’m looking forward to having a productive conversation with renters and property managers about their rights under the law.”

“Fostering strong professional relationships between landlords and tenants is an important aspect when it comes to limiting displacement,” Abney added. “Laying out the legal rights of both parties with the citizens I represent will help accomplish that goal.”

Local magistrates will also be present to provide additional information.

Tripoli Street Community Center is located at 816 Tripoli St., Pittsburgh 15212.
