Each State has its own version of laws relating to residential rentals. The diagram below shows Federal laws are the foundation and take precedence. This lesson covers the State legislation.

This lesson summarizes some key landlord-tenant laws applicable to residential rental units. Landlord-tenant laws are always changing, and may even vary from county to county. You have a responsibility to perform your own research and cautiously apply the laws to your unique situation.  If you have a legal question or concern, you should contact a licensed attorney referral service that is operated by the state bar association. This lesson is not intended to be exhaustive or a substitute for qualified legal advice.
