Recent Changes in Connecticut
Landlord-Tenant Law that
You NEED to Know
On October 1, 2017, four changes to Connecticut Landlord and Tenant Law became effective. Below, we examine the third of the new and amended laws and what they mean to landlords:
CHANGE # 3: PA 17-26. Section 7. This NEW law subjects a landlord to criminal penalties for larceny if the landlord collects rent after a foreclosure when the landlord has no legal right to do so.
This new law applies to both commercial and residential landlords. The criminal charges you may face depend on how much rent is collected in violation of the law. The charges range from a Class C Misdemeanor to a Class B Felony which all include the possibility of a jail sentence.
