Miami-Dade County’s Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources Business Affairs Division, Consumer Protection, in partnership with the Dade County Bar Association County Court Committee, will host a seminar on Landlord–Tenant Law, Wednesday, May 22, from 1 to 3 p.m.
The seminar will take place at the West Kendall Regional Library, 10201 Hammocks Blvd. Reservations are required prior to the event. The seminar is designed to educate landlords, property managers, tenants and lawyers about the nuts and bolts of a lease and the procedures involved in an eviction process. Handout materials will be provided.
Jeffrey Hearne of Legal Services of Greater Miami Inc., private attorney Michael Birnholz, and Miami-Dade County Consumer Advocate Leonard Elias will provide an overview of the landlordtenant law to help landlords and tenants understand their rights and responsibilities.
“Landlord-tenant disputes can easily escalate into high priced legal action” Elias stated. “These legal expenses can be minimized, if not avoided, when landlords and tenants know their rights and responsibilities under the law.”
This event is open to the public at a cost of $10 to cover seminar materials. Attorneys desiring to attend must register through the Dade County Bar Association to receive two continuing legal education credits. DCBA attorneys must pay $20 and non-DCBA attorney fees are $30 to attend the seminar.
