CLEVELAND - Sen. Sherrod Brown asked Congress Monday to pass new legislation that would protect renters from unruly evictions.
Brown said too many tenants were forced out of their homes with few days' notice when landlords lose their properties to foreclosures.
Sen. Brown was joined by Cleveland resident, Laquita Jarmon to share her personal experience of an unruly eviction. Jarmon and her four children were forced to leave their home with only a 30 days notice because her landlord failed to divulge the property.
In 2009 Congress passed legislation that allowed tenants to remain in the home until the lease is up or at least 90 days following a foreclosure.
That law is set to expire at the end of the year and Sen. Brown is asking Congress to pass a new legislation to protect renters.
