You’re a good tenant but get out…..

So I was doing some research for my blog Voucherlist.org when up pops a news story of a law to allow landlords to kick tenants out when your lease is up.

CHICAGO, IL - MAY 31:  A 'For Rent' sign stand...

CHICAGO, IL - MAY 31: A 'For Rent' sign stands in front of a house on May 31, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois. According to the Standard & Poor's Case-Shiller Home Price Index home prices fell in March in 18 of the 20 metropolitan areas monitored by the index, reaching their lowest levels since the housing bubble burst in 2006. In Chicago, were nearly 30 percent of homes offered for sale are bank owned, prices have fallen 7.6 percent from a year ago. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Even if you have never caused them a lick of trouble.

Yes, you, the most admirable tenant in the world…you too can be given the boot at the landlord’s whim…at least according to this bill.

Well, for one, I always assumed that landlords could do that anyway.

But, the question that I ask today isn’t whether or not landlords can…I ask should landlords should be able too.

The landlords are saying that tenants have too much power now while tenants are saying that this bill would give landlords too much authority.

Personally, I am topsy turvy on this action but I tend to fall down on the side of the tenant.

Unless there is major structural damage to the unit, I see no reason for an admirable tenant to be ejected from home.

Yes, home…

No apartment….

No unit…

H.O.M.E.

Or, will just have to make it equal and the tenant can have to ability to leave before the lease is up with absolutely no penalties.

How would landlords like those apples?
