[ARCHIVED] Pay to Stay Legislation


The City of Worthington is considering the adoption of Pay to Stay legislation and is seeking the community's feedback.  Pay to Stay legislation provides protections so that landlords are not able to evict a tenant for being just a day or two late on rent.  Currently, under Ohio law, a landlord is able to evict a tenant even if they are able to pay the full rent as long as it occurs after the due date.  This allows a landlord to be able to reject late rent from tenants who may be vulnerable due to circumstances that are out of their control, such as illness and resulting lost wages.  With the implementation of Pay to Stay ordinances, a renter may present the full rent due and reasonable late fees to obtain dismissal of an eviction action.
