Know Your Rights

The City of Minneapolis is launching a renting rights campaign to inform renters and property owners about renter rights by improving access to information from the City. The campaign aims to raise awareness about renting rights and the City’s renter resources with updates to the City website and community engagement with residents throughout Minneapolis. More than half of Minneapolis residents are renters.

Residents can learn more about renting rights, help with issues and resources on the City website.
