2022 Legal Forum
Hear attorneys discuss your questions.
Now that the COVID moratoriums are finally over, we have woken up to a new and puzzling reality. Conflicting state and local laws changed everything from lease renewals to rent payment enforcement. Contradictory and unclear language make it difficult to predict how case law will unfold over the coming years. This is your chance to hear three attorneys, currently practicing landlord-tenant, real estate and business law across Washington, discuss your most difficult questions. Experienced property management professional and housing provider rights advocate, Cory Brewer will moderate questions and lead the discussion.
We are no longer accepting pre-submitted questions. Questions submitted in the live Zoom session will be addressed as time allows in order received.
