One of the recent changes to the Residential Landlord Tenant Act changes the 3-day pay or vacate notice to a 14-day notice.  Senate Bill B 5600 also defines rent as, “recurring and recurring and periodic charges identified in the rental agreement.”  Charges for late fees, damages or legal costs cannot be included in a pay rent or vacate notice. If a landlord was to include charges not defined as rent, doing so could invalidate the 14 day notice.

Judges will be able to consider “equitable factors” such as hardship or illness, when asked to grant an eviction order.
