The Biden Administration plans to roll out a blueprint for a Federal Renters Bill of Rights meant to protect more than a third of Americans who rent.
This after more than a 20 percent increase in rental costs between 2019 and 2022, according to Forbes.
Costs are starting to come down now, but the new blueprint aims to make leases clearer and fairer, along with allowing tenants to organize and increasing access to affordable housing.
The Department Of Housing also wants to give tenants who can’t pay rent a 30-day cushion before landlords can terminate their lease.
State College Borough Council recently passed our region’s first ever Tenant’s Bill Of Rights meant to create housing equity in State College.
