If you're a landlord, property manager or tenant in Kansas City who wants your property manager to screen for evictions and felonies when deciding who rents the unit next to you, please remember to attend tonight's rescheduled hearing on the KC Tenant Bill of Rights. While the bill doesn't outright ban tenant screening, it appears to severely restrict it. It's also extremely vague and appears to even violate Fair Housing. Here's the executive summary and my critique of it.
The hearing will be held at the Robert J Mohart Building at 3200 Wayne Ave, Kansas City, MO 64109 and begin at 5:00 PM. Try to be there early if you would like to speak. Here is the Landlord Inc. event page.
And it's not to late to email the committee members, who's email addresses can be found here.
