Landlord Tenant Laws and Parties’ Rights

Lorman Educational Services offers a range of materials and programs to educate members about landlord tenant laws.

Landlord and Tenant Laws

Understanding landlord tenant laws is a good start for those going into urban or suburban real estate, since a majority of property deals made in such settings every year are tenancy agreements. However, this information can also abundantly be useful if you are letting or renting a property. In fact, in this case, the information you find on this page and in our associated webinars and online courses could help you sign a deal that benefits you a lot.

Additionally, this information can be very useful in your behaving responsibly as an informed landlord or tenant who understands the other party’s rights as well as her/his own. So, let’s talk a bit about both these sets of rights and how the information can help create an atmosphere of landlord tenant compliance to the law.

Tenant Rights

When it comes to understanding landlord tenant laws, it is imperative that you understand the rights of both parties. Beginning with tenant rights, we would like to highlight just how important and complex this information can be. As a tenant, whether you are entering a tenancy agreement for an apartment or a house, having this information can help you secure a deal where your rights or benefits are not neglected. Consider the following basic rights that are part of virtually all of the United States’ landlord tenant laws.

Landlord Rights

The other side of the picture allows you to study landlord rights so you may know all the basics of landlord tenant laws. As a landlord, knowing your rights allows you to protect them and, as a tenant, you can use this information to make sure you never overstep the other party’s rights. State laws usually govern the definitions of rights for tenants and landlords and, since the landlord is the party taking a much greater risk in the lease, the state fairly ensures their rights are comprehensively protected.

The following information will help you understand the basic landlord rights:

Ensuring Landlord Tenant Compliance

The important thing is to ensure landlord tenant compliance and, like any venture that has two parties, both of them have to play their part in this regard. The exercise itself is quite simple when you think about it: as long as both parties pay the other’s rights and be timely in rendering their share of the bargain, no complications may arise.

However, that is the ideal situation and disputes arise a lot in truth. Therefore, you can expect your state to intervene if compliance is required upon complaint of either of the parties in the lease by means of the court of law.
