A new bill that would hold landlords accountable has passed in the House.

A new bill that would hold landlords accountable for unsafe living conditions was passed in the House this week.

House Bill 2109 would protect tenants from retaliation from landlords and allow courts to require landlords to make necessary repairs for health and safety.

It is authored by Lawton Republican Daniel Pae.

This bill applies to landlords renting more than 10 units and prevents landlords from raising rent, threatening eviction, or decreasing services, as retaliation.

It now moves to the Senate where it is sponsored by Lawton Republican John Michael Montgomery.
