Life Event: Being a Landlord or Tenant

Talk to a Local Attorney

Renting an apartment or house from the landlord or renter point of view can be time-consuming and full of surprises. From background checks, to disputes with neighbors and, unfortunately, eviction, there are many legal issues to think about.  

Landlord and Tenant Information by State

Being a Good Landlord:

Whether you're renting an apartment over your garage, a second home, or a multi-unit building, being a landlord isn't easy. You must follow many local and state laws and protect yourself from unruly tenants, and your tenants from harm.

Being a Good Tenant:

Renting may seem stress-free. All you have to do is pay your rent on time and all else done for you, but it often isn't that simple.

Leases:

Whether you deal directly with your landlord or a property manager, understand who is responsible for what before signing a lease.

Problems and Disputes:

A small issue can escalate into a larger one in no time at all. Understand the steps you can take to protect your interests.

Other Issues:

Some additional issues to consider before renting.
