Possession and Evictions

NAR believes that the fundamental right of rental property owners to regain possession of their property shall not be abridged. NAR opposes the erosion of these property owner rights:
  1. The right to owner occupy property.
  2. The right to inspect property with proper notice.
  3. The right to terminate tenancy within the terms of the lease.
  4. The right to freely go out of the rental business and convert property to other uses.
