The Ohio house has introduced a bill, HB 297, that if passed would allow a tenant to terminate or modify a rental agreement if that tenant or a member of that tenant’s household is a victim of domestic violence.

The bill would require the tenant to notify the landlord within sixty (60) days after filing a petition for a protection order. The Landlord must either allow the tenant to terminate the lease, remove victim-tenant’s name from the lease and/or offer to move the tenant to another unit, if one is available.

The proposed bill will limit the number of requests to terminate a rental agreement to one request of the same landlord in five years.
