Department of Housing and Community Affairs Offers Translations of New Tenant Rights Tools

For Immediate Release: Monday, May 15, 2017

The Montgomery County Department of Housing and Community Affairs (DHCA) continues to expand its information and outreach for tenants by making new tenant rights tools available in six languages.

 

Many new tenant protections took effect on March 13 of this year. In this update of the Tenant Rights website, DHCA presents the translation of major resources including the Landlord Tenant Handbook, Code Enforcement Handbook, Standard Multifamily Lease, and Lease Summary.

 

These tenant resources, originally available in English and Spanish, are now being made available in Chinese, French, Korean and Vietnamese.

 

Next, DHCA will make available Summary Code Enforcement and Landlord Tenant pamphlets, to further educate the public. These also will be provided in the six languages.
