|HA 1 to HB 131||PWB||Baumbach||This bill sets out the framework for what happens with rent increases paid by a home owner to a community owner when such increase is in dispute. While in dispute, a home owner is required to pay the rent increase to the community owner. If the rent increase is decreased or rejected during the arbitration process or thereafter, on appeal, the community owner must rebate to the home owner that portion of the rent increase that was decreased or rejected. The rebate must occur within 20 days after the final date of the decrease of rejection of the rent increase. This bill also provides that if the arbitration is appealed and such appeal continues in Superior Court for more than one year after the increase was imposed, the community owner must escrow the rent increase amount collected after such date in a tenant security deposit account required under § 7018 of this chapter. Finally, this procedure will apply to any rent increase imposed 60 days after the enactment of this Act.|| |
