Helping community members stay in their homes

Landlord-Tenant program

Our landlord-tenant program, the first of its kind in our area, assists landlords and tenants in resolving rental situations without a credit-damaging court judgment for the tenant. On the hearing date, we provide advice to clients, negotiation services and representation.

This program is voluntary and designed to benefit both tenants and landlords. Typically, tenants receive financial assistance to prevent eviction, and our staff negotiates a conditional dismissal with the landlord.

Foreclosure programs

Our Foreclosure Education and Assistance Program provides direct counsel and full-scale legal representation to those at risk of losing their homes because of land contract forfeiture, mortgage or tax foreclosure. We have been able to save many homes through litigation, negotiation and counsel. In addition, this program provides housing counselors who provide relevant resources and education.

Temporary housing

LAD also provides referrals for those who have suffered eviction and are homeless to help them obtain temporary shelter through CAM administered by Southwest Solutions (313) 305-0311 while they get back on their feet.

If you are a resident of Wayne, Oakland or Macomb counties and believe you could benefit from our assistance, please call 313.967.5800 or 877.964.4700 – Mondays or Wednesdays between the hours of 9-11 a.m. and 1-3 p.m.
