Nelson Speaks on Landlord-Tenant Rights

Drew Nelson will present a free seminar titled, “What Are Your Rights as a Landlord or Tenant?” in Greensboro this month. The first session will be held 2/15/17 at 10am at the Greensboro Senior Center; the second is at the Women’s Resource Center on 2/28 at 11am.
