Resident comes into your office. He tells you he has a protective order and wants the other lease signer who was involved in an incident taken off the lease. Can you do that? What are the options in this situation?
Under Utah law, the victim (whether male or female) of certain crimes has some rights that may affect the tenancy. Because you are not a party to the protective order, you have no involvement with the victim’s enforcement of the protective order. It is important to remember that your involvement with a resident who has a protective order is only limited to the 2 situations discussed below.
