Developing Protections for Rent-to-Own HomeBuyers (Webinar)
April 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
As of January 1, 2018, would-be homeowners in Illinois are protected from predatory rent-to-own contracts by a new state law that created some of the strongest consumer safeguards in the nation when it comes to these situations. Housing Action Illinois drafted and advocated for this legislation after a resurgence of predatory marketing of rent-to-own contracts from largely unregulated companies that falsely promised homeownership to people with low incomes. During this webinar, we’ll cover: how we developed and advocated for this law action steps to find out if predatory rent-to-own contracts are an issue in your community, and tools you can use to develop your own advocacy campaign.
