Protecting student renters

A bill heard in the Judiciary Committee this week aims to improve relations between landlords and student renters while protecting student renters.

The bill, brought forward by the Minnesota Student Association, adds requirements to leases that specify the unit to be rented, the amount of prorated rent for leases that don’t start on the first of a month, and a better timeline for renters notifying landlords that they would like to end their lease. It passed out of the committee and will be heard next on the Senate floor. (SF 125)
