Cause Required for Eviction of Residential Tenant

February 23, 2024

HB24-1098

Summary

The legislature passed a bill that prohibits a landlord from evicting a residential tenant, even after expiration of a lease, unless the landlord has cause for eviction or when certain statutory grounds for a no-fault eviction exist. Grounds for a “no-fault eviction” include when the premises will be demolished or converted, for substantial repairs and renovations to the premises, when the landlord or a family member takes over occupancy, when the premises is listed for sale, when the tenant refuses to sign a new lease with reasonable terms, and when a tenant has a “history” of nonpayment of rent.
