Reducing Evictions

Helping Landlords Avoid the Cost of Eviction

PartnerTulsa is working with landlords to solve the eviction crisis. Tulsa has the 11th highest eviction rate in the country, with eviction coming with a high cost for many landlords. In a 2020 survey, 75% of landlords said they never or rarely collect eviction judgments for rent and damages, even with the help of an attorney. Landlords also said they spent over $1,500 on average when preparing a rental unit for a new tenant after an eviction. PartnerTulsa works with community organizations to provide landlords with essential services and resources to help them avoid the high cost of eviction, such as rental assistance and mediation.
