A suite of Tenant/Landlord Bills have been introduced and are progressing through the legislature. It is self-evident that no genuine effort has been made by bill sponsors to solicit input from industry-wide stakeholders. Tenant advocates have been candid (and successful) with their opposition to landlords having a seat at the table. That is why these bills are generally so short-sighted.
Tenant/Landlord relationship and interaction is dynamic and complex, and these bills fail to recognize the on the ground circumstances created with real people living real lives. Additionally the bills do not consider that both landlords and fellow tenants can suffer the consequences of a bad apple tenant.
