As landlords in Baltimore, we need to make sure that this bill is not passed. It will completely remove our ability to collect water bills in Rent Court. It serves no purpose but to force us to raise rents across the board. We cannot let this pass, even if they choose to add amendments.

Here is an excerpt from the bill for your convenience, if you would like to read the bill in its entirety, please click this link.  

IN ANY DETERMINATION UNDER THIS SUBTITLE AS TO THE RIGHTS AND 7
OBLIGATIONS OF THE PARTIES TO A LANDLORD–TENANT RELATIONSHIP CREATED 8
BY A WRITTEN OR ORAL RESIDENTIAL LEASE AGREEMENT, RENT: 9

(1) MEANS THE FIXED PERIODIC SUM FOR USE AND POSSESSION OF 10
THE LEASED PREMISES; AND 11

(2) DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY ADDITIONAL PAYMENTS DUE FROM THE 12
TENANT TO THE LANDLORD UNDER THE LEASE. 13
SECTION 2. AND BE IT FURTHER ENACTED.

Please forward this to every landlord you know.

Thank you,
