Two Rivers REIA to meet at Ramada Tropics, also – 6-9PM
We’re still working to arrange for Bill Bronchick to present a preview of what he’ll be covering during the Spring Conference, May 16-17, primarily for ILA members, and May 18-19 for a combined event.
We’re in the final stages of arranging venue and presentations and should have more info by the next meeting. It’s looking like we’re going to offer some truly outstanding learning opportunities.
HF356 will provide a longer opportunity to collect on Judgments for Rent
For those who have been awarded a judgment, usually in a small claims action, the
current law tilts entirely too heavily in favor of the resident who failed to pay the rent, and usually had to be evicted. Current law allows 10 years to file but only 2 years to collect.
HF356 with amendments H-1191 and S-3123 will provide:
- Five (5) years to file the action
- Five (5) years to collect (unless the right for collection is sold. Then, it is good for only two years, which is current law).
In a vote showing strong momentum for a more balanced Iowa Uniform Landlord Tenant Law, the Senate Judiciary Sub-Committee voted 3-0 today (April 1), to send the bill onto the full Senate Judiciary Committee … and we’re not foolin’!
To make it to floor debate this 2013 session, the full SJC must vote it out of committee by Friday, April 5th.
If you have not already, time to encourage your IA Senator to support the bill.
