As of January 1, 2010 the rules for landlords will be changing. The Supreme Court created a task force to write rules necessitatied by new legislation. SB 1448 Task Force will submit draft rules to the Supreme Court so the court can promulgate the rules by the legislation’s January 1, 2010 deadline. The bill that triggered the formation of this task force calls for amending rules of civil procedure. No longer will a small claims court be prohibited from compelling a landlord to fix or remedy a situation for which the landlord is responsible to the tenant. SB 1448 sets forth guidelines that the landlord/tenant experts will use to amend the rules.
