Rent Smart is a two-part class that will be offered Monday, April 8, and Thursday, April 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. at Father Carr's Place 2B, 1062 N. Koeller St., Oshkosh. Rent Smart is a tenant training program that provides practical education to help people acquire and maintain decent housing. Rent Smart emphasizes skills that can help tenants avoid legal confrontations. It stresses tenant responsibilities and the advantage of a quality landlord/tenant relationship opposed to an adversarial one.
Tenants learn about and practice skills that better prepare them for renting. By learning what is expected up front, tenants can prepare ahead to demonstrate that they can be a good tenant.
