Terminating housing now as a HWS establishment & in the future as a licensed AL facility
LIVE Q&A—10:30 AM
The process for terminating housing services will be changing significantly once the new assisted living law becomes effective in August 2021. Today, housing terminations fall under the Minnesota landlord–tenant law. Will this still be the case once the assisted living law goes into effect? This session will address how providers can terminate their housing relationships today, how that will change under the new assisted living law, and how housing terminations may be impacted by service issues. A housing provider’s obligations when terminating a relationship with a tenant/resident will be discussed, as will a variety of scenarios, including when a tenant stays after health-related services end.
