Here is an excerpt:

As housing in Vermont becomes more expensive and less available, knowing the legal rights of renting might help tenants keep a roof over their heads.

"It is very important for tenants to know their rights,” said Sandrine Kibuey of the nonprofit Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity (CVOEO). “So you're able to advocate for yourself. So you know what is actually accessible to you.”

CVOEO offers resources for tenants to learn about their rights and navigate the Vermont housing market, including workshops, online guidebooks, and a hotline (802-864-0099).
