Summary: SB 1120 would prohibit an apartment or property management company from requiring a resident displaced by natural disaster to sign a new lease at a term longer than the existing lease term before relocating the resident to a habitable unit.
Analysis: SB 1120 would interfere with the ability of a landlord and tenant to determine how lease agreements should be handled following a natural disaster that makes the leased unit uninhabitable. This legislation would place government in the place of dictating contract terms, rather than allowing the parties to the contract to work it out on their own. We oppose SB 1120.
