Next Member Meeting
January 11th - 7:00pm - VFW Hall
2211 Old Jacksonville Rd, Springfield
SALA member Joe Tetzlaff, a managing broker at ReMax, will educate us about Illinois House Bill 2775 being considered by the General Assembly which includes provisions that if a landlord requires a prospective tenant or current tenant to have a certain threshold level of income, then the landlord shall subtract any source of income in the form of a rent voucher or subsidy from the total of the monthly rent prior to calculating if the income criteria have been met. It further provides that a landlord shall not apply an income or asset requirement to a tenant with a non-wage source of income that the landlord does not apply to all tenants and if an income or asset requirement serves to generally exclude participants in a housing or benefits program, that requirement shall be considered presumptively discriminatory. There are other items in this bill that directly impacts landlords and how you must conduct your applications and leases and even evictions.
Members are welcome to bring guests. Meet and greet begins at 5:30 and an all-you-can-eat chicken dinner is available for $10.
This meeting is free and open to the public.
SALA continues to support and follow guidance from the CDC, city and county officials regarding COVID-19.
