On Thursday, June 25, San Antonio City Council voted unanimously to adopt the Notice of Tenant’s Rights Ordinance which requires property owners to provide tenants with a notice of tenant’s rights upon delivery of a notice to vacate for non-payment of rent; and provides after an initial warning for first-time offenders, a penalty for non-compliance not to exceed $500.
To be compliant with this ordinance, a notice of tenants’ rights would have to be delivered within one business day of delivery of the Notice to Vacate for non-payment of rent. The ordinance goes into effect on July 25th, however, it only applies to rental properties located within the San Antonio city limits. SABOR worked diligently with city staff on revisions to the ordinance to protect property owners.
SABOR recently hosted a Notice of Tenants Rights Webinar with Lori Houston, Assistant City Manager in San Antonio to answer questions and learn more about the ordinance. To view the recording of the webinar, click here.
