  • Foreclosure
  • Buying Your Building

We are aggressively moving forward with a unique event that is geared towards providing tenants and tenant’s associations with the support they most desperately need to maintain their day to day quality of life needs.

Please join us for this interactive, educational full-day event. Come and meet your DC Office of Tenant Advocate staff and learn about the vital issues that affect you, your family or your tenant association.
