Organization Information

Cleveland Tenants Organization provides information about the Ohio Landlord-Tenant Law to assist tenants living in properties facing foreclosure.

The Cleveland Tenants Organization was formed in 1975, after the passage of the Ohio Landlord-Tenant Law, in order to assist landlords and tenants in understanding the new law and their rights and responsibilities outlined in the law.  Over time, the organization has continued to grow and expand to include programs and services for Greater Clevelanders concerned with rental information, foreclosure/eviction diversion, community education, equal housing opportunities, healthy homes and homeless prevention.
