Free Legal Aid Available for Low-Income Tenants

The Alameda City Council approved funding to provide free legal services to low-income Alameda tenants. This new funding supports tenants in the city with termination or eviction notices, rent increases, lack of repairs or habitability, harassment or retaliation and other landlord-tenant disputes. 

Weekly drop-in hours are on Tuesdays at 2:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 9 a.m. at Centro Legal de la Raza, 3022 International Blvd., Suite 410, in Oakland; registration required. Tenants will receive a brief consultation with a Centro Legal staff member. An attorney will review each tenant’s situation, offer advice and provide a referral to an extended services appointment, if necessary.

Tenants currently facing eviction should call Centro Legal de la Raza at 437-1554 or visit the office at 3022 International Blvd., Suite 410, in Oakland.
