Quick Legislative Update!

For those interested in landlord/tenant law, SB-10 was signed by the Governor on March 22, 2018. The bill will go into effect on the day following the expiration of the ninety-day period after final adjournment of the general assembly (August 8, 2018).

The bill requires a residential landlord to provide each tenant with a copy of a written rental agreement signed by the parties and to give a tenant a contemporaneous receipt for any payment made in person with cash or money order. For payments not made in person with cash or money order, the landlord must provide a receipt if the tenant requests it. The landlord may provide the tenant with an electronic copy of the agreement or the receipt unless the tenant requests a paper copy.
