Consumers who are encountering legal issues with rentals due to COVID-19 are invited to attend a special Zoom presentation of “Tenant / Landlord: Rights and Responsibilities” on Thursday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., with NY State Assistant Attorney General Michael Danaher, Jr.
In this free Consumer Issues program, Attorney Danaher will discuss tenant-landlord issues including leasing, how security deposits are managed, when and how evictions occur, what to do about needed repairs, and how to avoid or resolve tenant-landlord disputes.
For this special Zoom presentation, he also will cover specific CoVid-19 rental issues affecting both landlords and tenants. From 12 to 1 p.m., Danaher will take questions that have been submitted via the Zoom chatbox. Since this is a remote broadcast, Danaher will not provide individual consultations on consumer problems, as he normally does when this monthly program is offered in-person at the CCE-Tompkins Education Center in Ithaca.
For two decades, Attorney Danaher has traveled from his office in Binghamton on the 2nd Thursday of each month to give a free live presentation on a popular consumer issues topic at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County. These programs are videotaped for rebroadcast on local Public Access Channel 15 on Mondays at 7:00 am, 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm, and also are edited and posted to CCE-Tompkins’ YouTube Channel.
