Housing Scams and Renter’s Rights

NAACP DeKalb spoke with attorneys from Atlanta Legal Aid Society about what you can do to avoid getting scammed with housing purchases or rentals. See The Videos


Home-purchases and rental transactions both involve large amounts of cash, and cash attracts scammers.  Most people are inexperienced in this area of their life and should be wary of “special deals” and fast financing options.   There are predatory lenders in the marketplace that can challenge your knowledge with mortgage scams, bait-n-switch scams, mortgage fraud, and Loan Officers screw-ups.  Renting a house or apartment can present challenges as well.  How can you avoid being scammed or bilked out of large sums of money when purchasing or renting?  SEE FULL STORY
