Next Thursday the Spokane City Council is holding a Housing Policy Meeting for Landlords and Property Managers. All area apartment owners, property managers, brokers, and concerned citizens must turn out to voice your concerns, and present your issues and point of view.
The proposals include:
"Just Cause Eviction" - This would prevent asking a tenant to leave except for a very limited number of reasons, and prevents landlords from removing bad tenants
Requiring landlords to have a business license
Landlord Registration Program
Requiring all landlords to be bonded
Renter's "Bill of Rights" that would strip landlord rights
City of Spokane Rental Property Inspection Program
