Landlord / tenant law covers all legal aspects of the relationship between an owner of real property (landlord) who, through a lease or rental agreement, promises to rent all or a portion of the property to another person (tenant).
Legal issues that can arise within the landlord / tenant relationship include unlawful lease provisions, improper maintenance of property, liability for tenants' injuries, evictions, and wrongful withholding of security deposits.
Landlord / tenant issues are governed almost exclusively by state statutes that apply specifically to the landlord-tenant relationship.*
