Rep. Macri

Tenant laws are clarified and revised to provide protections. Clarification is added to reasons for landlords to evict a tenant, and rights of remaining occupants if a tenant has vacated.  The 13 reasons why a tenant can be evicted (or refused for renewal, or have their tenancy terminated) are enumerated. 

Landlords shall not unreasonably withhold approval from any potential occupant. Penalties for violations on behalf of the landlord are outlined. Other sections are amended to include more protections for tenants.
