I assume from reading this the rental inspection law was tabled while its author attempts to tweek the wording in ways that will garner votes needed for passage.
Back when this proposal started to surface, I indicated to Councilman Jennings the notion of a registration data base was more saleable than inspections which are viewed as anti property owner.
Also, there has never been a nexus established to show the law would rectify frustrations over aging and decaying properties.
Such a program would be costly to implement.
It's a tough issue as not all tenants are the same...neither are landlords...and economics of property rentals may net be well understood by those promoting this law as the panacea it is not.
However, an outright defeat would place Council at odds with powerful and influential forces, so look for a watered down version with more gums than teeth.
