    The Tenant Rights Clinic explains your rights as a tenant and what to do if your landlord isn't making repairs. You will watch an instructional video. At the end of the video, you will have an opportunity to ask general questions to a volunteer attorney through the webinar. You will also have the opportunity to request a callback from Legal Aid to see if you qualify for additional help. Specific advice is not provided at the clinic. Clinics are located in many NC counties. If you do not see a clinic in your city or county, please check the surrounding counties in your area. If you cannot attend a clinic, you can always call our Helpline for a screening to see if you qualify to speak with an attorney. Legal Aid assists with some landlord/tenant issues.
