Coalition forms to lobby Vermont Legislature on just cause eviction measures

Read the article in WAMC Northeast Public Radio.

Here is an excerpt:

Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity Statewide Housing Navigator Ryan Murphy is a founding member of the campaign. She works with renters who call the tenants’ rights hotline. 

“I talk with people who are experiencing no cause terminations on an almost daily basis," Murphy said. "If a landlord can terminate any tenancy without a given reason they can use no cause eviction as a cover for illegal and unfair housing practices. As the law currently stands even a tenant who abides by their lease and pays their rent in full and on time can be terminated without cause. Eliminating no cause as a reason for termination will help hold landlords accountable to existing law and increase renter stability.”
