DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Landlord-tenant issues. Provides that if a landlord obtains a court order to evict a tenant, the landlord may also seek authority from the court to remove and dispose of the tenant's personal property and may do so as the landlord considers expedient if the value of the tenant's personal property is less than $1,000 and in accordance with the court order if the value of the tenant's personal property is at least $1,000. Provides that if a tenant with a week to week lease term refuses or neglects to pay rent when due the landlord may, without a court order: (1) immediately terminate the lease; and (2) dispose of any of the tenant's personal property that remains in the rental premises seven days or more after the landlord gives the tenant notice of the lease termination. Requires the tenant to vacate the rental premises immediately after the landlord gives the tenant notice of termination. Repeals superseded provisions relating to storage of a tenant's personal property.
