Housing Law

Our Housing Priority Committee works to:

  • Secure and protect safe, affordable and decent housing
  • Prevent homelessness and eviction
  • prevent and protect against foreclosures 
  • Ensure that government enforces tenant protection laws
  • Secure and protect tenants’ rights to public and subsidized housing

Most often, our Housing Priority Committee handles cases where landlords and housing authorities violate laws and regulations in:

  • Denying public and subsidized housing
  • Terminating public and subsidized housing
  • Evictions
  • Promises to repair
  • Lockouts
  • Security Deposits
  • Earnest Money
  • Foreclosing mortgages

If you are being evicted in Milwaukee County, please see the Eviction Defense Project.

If you are a low-income person with a different housing law problem or in a different county, contact Legal Action to learn whether we can help.
