Northern California Land Trust, Oakland Community Land Trust, and Sustainable Economies Law Center welcome you to a lunch-time teach-in and webinar for housing-focused attorneys and legal aid groups.
Attorneys and legal organizations are often proximate to the frontlines of local anti-displacement struggles, helping to prevent evictions and to strengthen legal and policy protections for tenants. As the affordable housing crisis continues in California and across the nation, demand is growing among tenants for long-term solutions that enable greater community control of land and permanently affordable housing, such as Community Land Trusts (CLT), housing cooperatives, and other forms of shared equity housing.
This two-hour teach-in and webinar for legal professionals will cover the legal nuts and bolts of permanently affordable/shared equity housing, including different legal models and funding mechanisms to remove housing from the speculative market. The session will help inform housing-focused attorneys’ knowledge of affordable housing finance generally, different models of shared equity housing, and the emerging needs of community land trusts and shared equity models like the permanent real estate cooperative.
If you work with tenants, support the movement for community control of land and housing, or just want to learn more about financial and legal models, please join us!
