A bill that would prohibit the courts from extending the terms of tenancy failed the House on a vote of 26-51.

House Bill 1564 by Rep. Tom Gann, R-Inola, would have allowed a landlord to immediately apply to a sheriff for enforcement of the right to possession upon the entry of a judgment. The measure limits the amount of a late payment fee to 15% of the monthly rent. The measure provides that the provisions in the Oklahoma Residential Landlord and Tenant Act are enforceable even during a catastrophic health emergency.

“This was not a matter of trying to deny someone tenancy, but about reestablishing the rule of law and not the rule of judges,” Gann said. “This ensures contracts and the Constitution remain in place even during a pandemic.”
