“Wow! I had not idea what a resource this is. Thank you!”
“As a landlord and rental property owner I’ve learned that BARHA membership is priceless.”
BARHA Staff reached out to all the current city council candidates with questions to get an understanding of where they stand on rental housing issues. You have seen a few in our newsletter, and heard them at our luncheon but here are all the complete questions and answers. Be sure to be educated and VOTE! If you own properties in Boulder but don’t live there, put signs up on your properties, talk to your tenants, friends and colleagues. There are six open seats this cycle so it is more important than ever! Now onto the questions:
Four new state laws directly impacting the rental industry passed this session. (1) HB19-1106 Rental Application Fees, (2) HB19-1118 Time Period to Cure Lease Violation, (3) HB19-1170 Changes to Warranty of Habitability, and (4) HB19 – 1328 Landlord & Tenant Duties Regarding Bed Bugs. There are a few other ones that should have some effect on us but these are the biggies. Please note that HB19-1118 Time Period to Cure Lease Violation is in effect now! The other bills go into effect on August 2, 2019. For those that are members we will be sending out an interim lease update with language regarding HB19-1118 and will be sending out a comprehensive rewrite encompassing all the new laws in July.
There are several operational changes that come with these new laws. If you missed out webinar in May, feel free to register for the recording and watch it anytime. This is open to both members and non-members.
