Kentuckians know the value of home. The Uniform Landlord Tenant Act (URLTA) is an act that clarifies and codifies the legal duties of landlords and tenants entering into residential lease agreements. Kentucky state law allows cities and counties to adopt it as law, and several communities have: Lexington, Louisville, Somerset, and several communities in Northern Kentucky, for example. But landlords and tenants in 116 counties are still without the protections and stability provided by URLTA. This handout provides talking points for speaking with your legislators about URLTA, which is expected to be introduced soon in the 2017 General Assembly.
