This program is designed to educate landlords, property management professionals and real estate agents to recent changes on landlord and tenant law in Kansas and Missouri. The eviction process and the landlord's ability to collect past due rent will be discussed in detail. Commercial landlord and tenant laws will also be discussed.
The program will take a practical approach, including a step-by-step review of the eviction process. There will be a discussion of how the contents of a lease can affect that process. The program will also review the 'nuts and bolts' of how to collect rent awarded in court via garnishment.
Equally important, the program will warn of certain state and federal statutes, which can be traps for the unwary landlord. Guidance will be offered as to how implementation of proper procedures can significantly reduce the risk of liability in these areas.
