What the community is saying

My last landlord tried to get my whole deposit with false charges and intimidations. The Tenants' Voice helped me learn my rights and react to the situation quickly. I got most of my deposit back and away from that stressful situation.
Now, I'm more confident in dealing with my new landlord and things are working out.
