Meeting Offers Opportunity to Learn About the Landlord-Tenant Law

District Court Judge Cameron Blau addressed city council in February to urge adoption of the Uniform Residential Landlord-Tenant Act

 By Robin Gee, City Council Beat Editor  

Landlords, tenants and others interested in learning more about the Uniform Residential Landlord-Tenant Act (URLTA) can come to an informational meeting on Wednesday, June 26, at 6 p.m. at the Fort Thomas city building. District Court Judge Cameron Blau will discuss the act and answer questions at the meeting that will be held in council chambers.

At its April meeting, the Fort Thomas City Council passed the URLTA. The Kentucky statute spells out the roles and responsibilities of both landlords and tenants in the city. Judge Blau addressed council in February to request that the city consider its adoption. At that time, Fort Thomas was the only Northern Kentucky city that had not adopted the act.

Blau said making the act uniform across all area municipalities will help landlords and tenant have a clear understanding of their rights and responsibilities no matter where they own property or rent in the region.

The URTLA is a useful tool that protects both landlords and tenants when a lease is not in effect or if a lease doesn’t cover certain areas of concern. It is fair, because it lays out clear protections and procedures for all, he said.

Mark your calendars for June 26, and see the URTLA event webpage for more information.
