Pro bono real estate lawyer for refugee housing?
We are hoping to donate use of our vacant apartment in Berkeley to an organization supporting Afghan refugees, for use as housing for 6+ months. Does anyone know a real estate attorney who would be willing to donate her/his time to help us make sure we're doing the donation/agreement properly? We want to make sure we're in line with Berkeley rental codes and do not want to create a landlord-tenant relationship. The organization we're working with, Jewish Family and Community Services East Bay, may be familiar with such an arrangement but we want to take it off their plate if they aren't. And figure it out ahead of time so that they can move quickly. Thank you, generous East Bay community!
