Rent Smart Workshop Offered in Menasha on August 5 & August 7

Rent Smart is a two-part class that will be offered Tuesday, August 5th and Thursday, August 7th, 2014, from 9:30AM - 12:30PM at the Menasha Public Library, located at 440 First St., Menasha WI. Rent Smart is a tenant training program that provides practical education to help people acquire and maintain decent housing. Rent Smart emphasizes skills that can help tenants avoid legal confrontations. It stresses tenant responsibilities and the advantage of a quality landlord/tenant relationship opposed to an adversarial one.
Tenants learn about and practice skills that better prepare them for renting. By learning what’s expected up front, tenants can prepare ahead to demonstrate that they can be a good tenant.
