HB1067 Eviction Legislation

Posted By: Denise Hanzlik SDMHA Industry ,

WE NEED YOU!

HB1067 would streamline the eviction process in South Dakota.  Reducing the debt and possible damages for the tenant and the property owner.

This past the House and we are currently waiting on Senate schedule.

This would change the eviction process as follows:

  • Notice to Quit & Vacate (3 day):  No change to current process
  • Summons & Complaint (4 day):  Notice of Publication would start the same day as first attempt to serve; 4 attempts to serve (6 hours apart), then post it in a conspicuous place & mail.  (NO LONGER PHYSICALLY SERVE)
  • Court Appearance & Judgement:  Judge may not give more than 14 days continuance to tenant.

In order for HB1067 to be successful, WE NEED YOUR PARTICIPATION in the process.  Please come to Pierre, call and email your Representatives.

THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW!
