Another Bill Affecting Landlords/Tenants Introduced

HB19-1118 was introduced this week relating to landlord/tenant issues.  Introduced on January 16, 2019, if passed, would require a landlord to provide a tenant fourteen (14) days to cure a violation for unpaid rent or for a first violation of any other condition or covenant of a lease agreement, other than a substantial violation, before the landlord can initiate eviction proceedings. The bill also requires fourteen (14) days notice prior to the landlord terminating a lease agreement for a subsequent violation of the same condition or covenant of the agreement.

Currently, the law requires a landlord to provide a tenant three (3) days to cure a violation for unpaid rent or any other condition or covenant of a lease agreement, other than a substantial violation, before the landlord can initiate eviction proceedings based on that unpaid rent or other violation. Current law also requires three (3) days notice prior to a tenancy being terminated for a subsequent violation of a condition or covenant of a lease agreement.
