Bill Summary

Current law requires a landlord to provide a tenant 3 days to cure a violation for unpaid rent before the landlord can initiate eviction proceedings based on that unpaid rent.

The bill allows landlords to initiate an eviction proceeding after providing 3 days' notice but requires landlords to accept payment of all outstanding amounts due before the date by which a tenant is required to appear in court in an eviction proceeding. For a second or subsequent violation of the same agreement within 6 months of a violation, a landlord may require payment within 3 days.
