While the focus has been mostly on Donald Trump, our newly elected President, one amendment passed in Jefferson County, Alabama that affects landlords and tenants.
The bill now says that tenants are solely responsible for garbage at the home. This is a change from the norm, where in places like Fairfield, if the tenant didn’t pay, then the landlord was stuck holding the bill. I’ve personally paid hundreds of dollars for this to keep a lien from being placed on one of my houses.
We’d also love to answer any questions about how this might affect you!
Matthew is the CEO of Evernest. He is a student of the book Good to Great and is passionate about building the best property management company on the planet (and maybe even the universe if Elon Musk will hurry up). You can usually find Matthew at the baseball field with his son, at a dance recital with his daughter, or at his favorite restaurant with his wife, when he’s not in the office. And if you can’t find him in any of those places, it probably means he’s traveling.
