House passes eviction protections

May 11, 2021

Did you know that in Connecticut, fewer than 7% of tenants have legal representation in eviction cases? In contrast, 80% of landlords do have legal counsel.


At a moment when so much is at stake, tenants need support navigating the highly technical and fast-moving pace of eviction cases. HB 6531 provides tenants with fairness and equity by guaranteeing they can obtain legal representation.

If passed, CT will be only the 2nd state to enact this legislation to protect tenants.
