TULSA, OK – [October 5, 2015] – Whether you are a landlord or a renter, it’s important to know your rights and responsibilities. The Tulsa Health Department has partnered with Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma to offer Housing 101 on October 8 from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the Tulsa Health Department, 5051 S. 129 E. Ave. The workshop is free to attend and open to the public.
“Housing codes and regulations are constantly changing, and that can cause confusion,” said Bernard Dindy, THD environmental health services manager. “The goal of this workshop is to educate attendees on the bare minimum safety standards for housing, including electrical, plumbing, mechanical, safe heating sources, occupancy limitations and more.”
The workshop will include information about the International Property Maintenance Code, Oklahoma Residential Landlord-Tenant Law and the Fair Housing Act which protects against discrimination. Everyone with an interest in housing regulations is invited to attend, including apartment managers, leasing agents, landlords and renters. The event will include a Q&A session with representatives from THD and Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma.
