KS Legislature is seeking to limit the city and county’s ability to require rental/landlord registration.
This is a heads up to all property owners that have rentals in Kansas or are contemplating adding rental properties. HB 2665 would prohibit cities and counties from adopting or enforcing rental property licensing ordinance that includes a requirement for periodic inspections of privately owned rental property for city code violations unless the city or county has first obtained a warrant from the court. A tenant, if not subject to eviction, could request property inspection only if the owner of the property was notified of the inspection

Cities with rental regi8stration acts in place are being requested to review the bill and to testify in opposition to the bill.
