Legal Assistance

If you are a low-income renter, Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services (SMRLS) may be able to provide free legal help to assist in resolving issues with your landlord. If you do not qualify for assistance from SMRLS, the State of Minnesota Attorney General's Office provides a Landlords and Tenants Rights and Responsibilities booklet.
