Below is a list of available resources for renters and landlords.
Free Mediations in St. Louis
If you live in St. Louis, we provide free help to tenants and landlords trying to reach an agreement. We can also assist you with finding rental and utility assistance.
Our mediations can be significantly faster and much more cost effective than filing cases in court.
Finding an Attorney
If the parties are unwilling to try to reach an agreement, they can go to court. The party filing the lawsuit will have to pay a filing fee and arrange for service.
Landlords and renters can hire private attorneys. Renters who cannot afford an attorney can reach out to legal aid organizations.
