Hillsborough County Code Enforcement is unveiling a new program to help residential landlords and rental managers provide safer dwellings, avoid code violations, and assist tenants in crisis.
The first in a series of free Landlord/Tenant Forums will be held on Tuesday, June 24 from 9 to 11 a.m. in partnership with the University Area Community Development Corporation. The facility’s location is 14013 N. 22nd St. in Tampa. Additional presentations will be scheduled quarterly in locations across the County.
The Landlord/Tenant Forum series aims to provide all stakeholders with education and information about County services, including safety nets for renters in crisis and County code requirements. Topics of interest range from rental assistance programs to smoke detectors and more, with experts on hand to answer questions. Light refreshments will be served; advance reservations are appreciated but not required.
Hillsborough County agencies participating in the inaugural Landlord/Tenant Forum include:
· Code Enforcement
· ADA Liaison
· Community Affairs
· Consumer Protection
· Fire Rescue
· Neighborhood Relations
· Pet Resources Division
· Social Services
Neighborhoods near the University of South Florida comprise the largest concentration of multi-family rental residences in Hillsborough County. Property owners and managers of rental housing in the USF area are encouraged to attend the forum; renters are also welcome.
