We are excited to announce Attorney Tristan Pettit’s Landlord Boot Camp will be held on Saturday, November 14th.

Due to  the CDC National Eviction Moratorium, we delayed this event so that we could include the most timely information on navigating the current CDC Moratorium and other COVID-19 related issues affecting Landlord-Tenant law.

The Saturday, November 14th event will be held as a live-streamed webinar from 8:30 AM -5:00 PM with live Q & A from 5-6 PM.

Enjoy these advantages of the new virtual format:

    • Attendees will receive a searchable 100 page + PDF Boot Camp manual, making it easier to search and reference items in the future.
    • A recording will be available to attendees for 14 days after the event to re-watch portions that you want a deeper understanding of.
    • Attend the event from the comfort and safety of your own home.
    • As in prior Boot Camps, the live Q & A session will be part of this event.
    • You will receive all of the same information normally presented in Landlord Boot Camp PLUS the latest information on navigating the CDC and CARES Act eviction moratoria.
