"Senators LB 545 is a bad idea. No landlord wants to evict a tenant. They’re our customers and we want them to stay our customers. An eviction is an expensive and painful procedure for all involved. Right now a landlord is inclined to give a tenant a little time to pay the rent and work with them so they can get caught up. This bill automatically and arbitrarily delays by 10 days the time a landlord can regain possession of their property after an eviction proceeding. The result is that landlords will be much less inclined to give the tenant time get the rent paid and much more likely to start the eviction process earlier in the month than now occurs. The grace period that some landlords give a tenant to get the rent paid will disappear. We saw this same effect when the eviction notice time was raised by the Legislature from 3 days to 7 days. It gave landlords an incentive to start evictions much more quickly. The result of this bill is that it hurts both tenants and landlords instead of helping them. Senators I urge you to reject LB 545. Thank you."
