Current Bill Summary

SB 350 - This act provides a procedure for a landlord to reenter and take possession of leased commercial premises without a judicial process and court order. Premises covered within the act include real property leased under the terms of a rental agreement for commercial or business purposes, but does not include real property used for residential or agricultural purposes.

A landlord may reenter and take possession of the premises if a notice of default has been provided to the tenant at least 45 days prior to the landlord reentering the premises. A second notice shall also be provided 10 days before reentry and shall include a statement that the rent is due and unpaid and that the landlord may reenter the premises and remove and dispose of personal property if the rent remains unpaid for more than 45 days, unless the tenant pays the rent within 10 days of the second notice.

If the rent remains unpaid 10 days after the second notice, the landlord is entitled to a lien upon the tenant's personal property located on the premises and may seize and sell such personal property as is necessary to secure payment of the rent. The landlord is not liable for loss or damage to any of the tenant's personal property left in or at the premises.

This act is identical to HB 1917 (2018).
