Office of Landlord-Tenant Affairs
Poolesville uses the Montgomery County Office of Landlord-Tenant Affairs (OLTA) to address disputes between tenants and landlords. The OLTA is charged with informing the public of the general rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants and helping the tenants resolve their disputes amicably, quickly and free of charge, without having to go through the District Court process. OLTA enforces Chapter 29, Landlord-Tenant Relations, of the Montgomery County code along with parts of Title 8, Landlord - Tenant of the Real Property Article, Annotated Code of Maryland.
Please visit the OLTA website for information and assistance with disputes or just to understand your rights and responsibilities.
