The following Administrative Rules and Process apply to Exemption 11:
The Landlord must submit the required REA form to PHB.
The Landlord must receive an Acknowledgement Letter issued by PHB. An Acknowledgment Letter does not exempt a Landlord from complying with all relevant notice requirements.
For Rental Agreements beginning after December 14, 2020 the Landlord must provide to the Tenant a copy of all pages of the Acknowledgement Letter prior to the Tenant entering into a Rental Agreement.
In addition to providing the Acknowledgment Letter as described above, the Landlord must provide to the Tenant a copy of all pages of the Acknowledgement Letter, including a description of a Tenant's Rights and Obligations, prior to issuance of a Termination Notice.
This exemption only applies if the Landlord is issuing a Termination Notice.
The Owner(s) of the Dwelling Unit shall not receive an Acknowledgement Letter for this exemption more than once and is permanently ineligible to apply any other exemption to the same Dwelling Unit.
