Upcoming tenant group meeting advises renters to know their rights

DeKalb Tenant Association workshop set for Sept. 24

DeKALB – If you’re a renter in DeKalb and wondering how to get your security deposit back when you move, or what your rights are as a renter in the city, the DeKalb Tenants Association wants you to come to their next meeting.

Set for 6 p.m. Sept. 24 at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 900 Normal Road in DeKalb, the association will host a Tenants Rights Workshop with representatives from Northern Illinois University’s Student Legal Services on hand to answer questions.

According to a news release from the tenants association, the meeting also will provide opportunity for people to ask questions anonymously if they’re worried about publicly speaking out against their landlord.

Questions can be submitted before to dekalbtenants@gmail.com, via phone call call to 815-216-5695, or via the DeKalb Tenants Association Facebook page.

Tenants who know their rights are less likely to be victims of predatory housing practices, according to the release.
