Landlord Tenant Act with Michelle Rawn -- Graphic by Nina Musgrave

Whether you're a new landlord starting out or an old hand at property management, you need to attend our next main meeting on Thursday, August 22nd. Louisville attorney Michelle Rawn is going to cover the basics of Kentucky landlord tenant law and also update everyone in the room on what's new, what's changed, and what developments are on the horizon that could affect you in years to come.

Attorney Michelle RawnMichelle Rawn will cover the Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act (URLTA), which has been adopted by 19 counties in Kentucky, including Jefferson, Oldham and Fayette. But there are also pocket cities sprinkled around our neck of the Bluegrass that use it. She'll explain how to write our leases in accordance with the URLTA -- and how to write them in areas where it has not been adopted.

And what's the deal with assistance animals? You can't call them "pets" anymore. How do you make provision in your leases for these "service animals" and "emotional support animals"? Can you charge pet rent? Do you have any recourse if you feel a tenant is trying to make an end run around you with a pet disguised as an assistance animal? Michelle has the answers!

Michelle will set us straight on our rights and responsibilities as landlords -- and give us info on how to stay out of court. She also plans to cover the rules regarding:

  • Security deposits
  • Move-in and move-out inspections
  • How to properly give notice to tenants for non-payment of rent
  • How to properly notify tenants about other lease violations
  • What your maintenance obligations are as a landlord -- and what the tenant's obligations are
  • What you must do if a tenant notifies you of an issue with your property affecting their health and safety
  • When and how you may legally enter your property after a tenant has taken up residence
  • And more!

Make a list of questions to bring to the meeting, because Michelle will be holding a Q&A session. Get all your questions answered!

Early Meeting Speaker: Daniel Flach of Granite America will talk about the advantages of choosing granite countertops for your flips and rentals.
