Please think through the ramifications of the two provisions described in the last paragraph of this news report (Assembly To Take Up Landlord-Tenant Bill, 5/14/13)
A landlord could know his/her building is unsafe, have no obligation to tell a current or prospective tenant about it, and, possibly, would therefore have no liability in the event the tenant was injured. How frequently is a landlord required to have a property inspected?
A landlord will be permitted to seize the property of a tenant in the event of an eviction? Concurrently with an e-mail notification of eviction? Any limits on what can be confiscated? What if a landlord confiscated something the tenant needed to earn a living?
