HB19-1118: Time Period to Cure Lease Violation

Current law requires a landlord to provide a tenant 3 days to cure a violation for unpaid rent or any other condition or covenant of a lease agreement, other than a substantial violation, before the landlord can initiate eviction proceedings based on that unpaid rent or other violation. Current law also requires 3 days’ notice prior to a tenancy being terminated for a subsequent violation of a condition or covenant of a lease agreement.

The bill requires a landlord, except for a landlord pursuant to a nonresidential agreement or an employer-provided housing agreement, to provide a tenant 10 days to cure a violation for unpaid rent or for a first violation of any other condition or covenant of a lease agreement, other than a substantial violation, before the landlord can initiate eviction proceedings. The bill requires 10 days’ notice prior to the landlord terminating a lease agreement for a subsequent violation of the same condition or covenant of the agreement. For a nonresidential agreement or an employer-provided housing agreement, three days’ notice is required to cure a violation for unpaid rent or for a first violation of any other condition or covenant of a lease agreement, or to terminate a lease for a subsequent violation of the same condition or covenant.
