A Maryland delegate aims to protect tenants in Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties by ensuring landlords have a rental license before they try to evict them. House Bill 524, sponsored by Del. Mary Lehman, a Democrat who represents parts of both counties, would require a landlord who files a failure to pay rent judgment — the first step in an eviction process — to first prove their property is licensed and inspected, firmly placing the burden of proof with the landlord to show that the property is in compliance with the law throughout the eviction process.
