ANJE calls for change in rental laws
The National Association of Young Entrepreneurs (ANJE) said today there was a need to modify the legal framework that covers rental properties. Biviana Riveiro, the ANJE president, commented that the laws are being abused by renters, leading to interminable judicial processes that delay evictions of individuals who renege on paying the rent, yet continue to occupy dwellings, denying the owners the use of the property. Riveiro said that this is an obvious violation of the Constitution.
Riveiro said that the current rules and regulations regarding rental properties, including housing, business properties, and vacant lots are distributed in a myriad of laws that contain many loopholes and contradictions. This patchwork of legislation has generated a climate of judicial insecurity.
She pointed out that there are some positive initiatives in the National Congress that could address the issue and encouraged a comprehensive effort to reform and modernize the law that governs rentals to provide an effective legal framework that will benefit owners and renters alike.
