05:28 PM -- HB17-1310



Senator Fenberg, sponsor, presented House Bill 17-1310. The reengrossed bill limits the application screening fee that a landlord can charge to a prospective tenant to a fee that covers only the landlord's actual costs. Landlords must provide prospective tenants who have paid the fee with either a disclosure of anticipated expenses or an itemized receipt of actual expenses. If the fee exceeded the actual screening costs, the landlord must return the overage amount to the tenant. A landlord that violates any of these provisions is liable to his or her tenant for two times the amount of the application screening fee, plus court costs and reasonable attorney fees.



Senator Fenberg presented amendment L.004 (Attachment E) and a preamended version of the bill (Attachment F). He responded to committee member questions.
