Real Rentals

In an effort to deal with the long-term rental crisis in the Tahoe-Truckee region, Real Rentals provides practical information to individual renters and to the community at-large on topics involving rentals, such as: helping renters develop the skills to find a place to live, keep that place once they move in, deal with the legal issues related to tenancy, etc. In addition, for the community at large, the column will also focus on publicizing innovative solutions to the long term housing market in the region. Each edition will include a bit of policy information or current rental “news” as well as a response/practical solution to it.
