Creates a separate cleaning deposit which can be no more than 15% of the rental amount. - This is not just the cleaning fee that small business charge on move-out is already at $450 that's a minimum small apartment/house here in Southern Nevada that is not enough, you can at least amend it to an invoice of a legitimate registered cleaning company and not an actual percentage or dollar amount Transfers the burden for proving anything “other than normal wear and tear” to the landlord. - How is this possible when we are limited to enter the premises and there is no acceptable or legal measure of "wear and tear" Ex. if the tenant destroys a part of the house, how can we prove this unless we have cameras inside the house and even that, that is a violation of the tenants privacy Mandates that a single fee be charged for screening tenants regardless of the number of applicants. - This is unreasonable so I can literally only screen 1 tenant for background check (and if the applicant fails) and shoulder all expenses of the other applicants, that doesn't make any sense Requires that all fees, fines, and costs be printed on the first page of the lease. - This is also impossible because an example is HOA penalty fees on violation of community standard, they are not transparent on fees as it constantly changes Changes the allotted time for the landlord to deliver a written accounting/security deposit balance to the tenant from 30 days to 28 days. - This should be 28 BUSINESS days and not including holidays and weekends a tenant to be served with certain notices relating to evictions. Existing law also provides that certain notices may be served by an agent of an attorney - This hurts small business, landlords that doesn't own several properties, not everybody can afford a lawyer especially if a landlord only owns 1-2 rental single-family homes
