Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Landlord and Tenant Act. Requires every landlord who leases a lower-level unit that has flooded at least once in the last 10 years to maintain flood insurance on the rental property that covers both the building and the contents of the building, including the personal property of tenants. Provides that if a landlord fails to maintain flood insurance, and flooding occurs that results in damage to the tenant's personal property, affects the habitability of the leased property, or affects the tenant's access to the leased property, the tenant may: (1) terminate the lease by giving written notice to the landlord no later than the 30th day after the flood occurred and the landlord shall return all rent and fees paid in advance no later than the 15th day after the tenant gave notice; and (2) bring an action against the landlord of the property to recover damages for personal property lost or damaged as a result of flooding.
