What is preventing ppl from having an attorney in eviction proceedings is the cost. PVD has just trialed a program for assigned counsel in these cases and it makes a big difference. Also, ppl get evicted for many reasons, some of which will be outside their control (e.g. lost a job). Should that impact their ability to find housing in perpetuity?

You can check what your ll has done on the DOH database. They need to renew their lead certs every two years bc lead paint is typically encapsulated rather than removed and can be re-exposed.
