"Right To Renew" proposal seeks to protect Ann Arbor renters
The ordinance would prevent landlords from declining to renew leases from renters without cause. This is a potentially significant change as more than half of Ann Arbor’s residents live in rental properties.
“The landlord would have to pay up to two times the current rent as relocation assistance for the tenant. And if a tenant could actually prove damages beyond that, there are also some options for legal recourse.”
The next step is a public hearing before the final version of the ordinance is created and voted on.
