TUESDAY, 'AUGUST 30, 1949 Rental Changes Are Streamlined Landlords, Tenants Must Serve Notice Of Intentions To simplify the steps laken by landlords and tenants in getting their full rights under rent control the Housing Expediter has bsncd new procedural regulations. Hereafter landlord's and tenants will serve notice on each other when applying to the rent adjustments, eviction certificates and other actions affecting the oilier party. Previously the notice was served by the area rent office after the application or petition had been filed. The new procedure will reduce the workload on local offices and speed up the final determination on requests Appeals Direct (o Washington Another change provides for direct appeals by the landlords or tenants from the area rent director's decisions to the housing expediter in Washington. This eliminates the intermediate step of review by the Regional housina exneditcr which was previously available to landlords and tenants. Apolicatlous for review now pending in Ihe Regional Offices will be handled as follows: 1. Those involving a tenant's stay of certificate relating to eviction or landlord's deposit of money in escrow after a rent reduction will be forwarded to Washington for consideration as appeaTs. 2. All other apnlications will IK dismissed by the regional office, but the landlord or tenant may ask for reconsideration by the area rent director or file an apneal with the housing expediter In Washington. Housing Eloediter Tighe E. Woods emphasized that the agency policy of requiring notice to affected parties is retained and in fact strengthened under lliis streamlined procedure. Under this policy, either party to a rental agreement is entitled to know when the other party files a request with the rent office for an action which will mean eviction, change In rent or change in thr accommodations or services. Conies Go to Area Office i The new method [•alls for the landlord or tenant to serve the notice directly to the other person jiLsiead of providing a notice cf»iy to the rent office for service. For example, a landlord will now deliver & copy of bis petition personally to each tenant or by mail, or by leav- intr it at the tenant's residence, provided there are no more than four tenants involved. In cases where there are more tlie.n four tenants, the landlord may use this same method or post a copy of the petition form on the premises. If the notice is posted, the landlord also must serve each len- nnt with a notice of the nature of the posted document and the place where it is posted. Fn those cases where a tenant is seeking action .he can serve notice only by delivering a copy of hi.s application personally to the landlord, by leaving it at liis place or residence or principal place of busine,ss, or by mail. Tenants are not required to serve each other with notice. As before, two copies of each document must be. filed with the area rent office, together with certification thaf, notice has been provided the other party. Wind Increases The force of wind increase* with the square of velocity. A 30-mile wind compares with a 10-mile wind as 900 compares with ICO. For this reason, a .small increase in velocity accounts for a great increase in wind damage. BLTTHEVTLLE \AKK.f COURIER Natural Gas In Pocahontas By May Seen LITTLE ROCK, Aug. 30.
