Senate Bill 5600 would include some significant changes to Residential Landlord Tenant Act. The potential changes would:
Change the pay rent or vacate notice from 3 days to 14.
Remove the option of a set term lease that expires at the end of term; a notice to vacate would always be required.
Require a 60-day notice for all rent increases.
Allow a tenant to cure any judgment for non-payment within five court days by paying the principal amount of the judgment. This would reinstate their tenancy.
Increase the penalty for a landlord deliberately including prohibited provisions in a rental agreement from $500 to one month’s rent or treble damages, whichever is greater.
Require landlords to provide estimates or invoices for charges for damages in deposit accountings.
