Your home should be a place where you feel comfortable and safe. But that sense of security can be shaken when an eviction notice shows up on your door or when the landlord won’t fix the leaky roof or plumbing issue. If you’re worried about your housing, you can call the Public Justice Center for help. In many cases, our lawyers and paralegals can help you understand your rights and find a solution.
This page provides information on the eviction process in Baltimore City, but it is not legal advice. The Public Justice Center provides free legal assistance, depending on capacity, to 1) renters in Baltimore City who are facing eviction or have questions about their rights; and 2) renters statewide whose landlords are in foreclosure. Please call us at 410-625-9409 for more information. If you are a renter outside of Baltimore City and your landlord is not in foreclosure, please contact the Maryland Court Help Center or another nonprofit legal services provider.
