Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Mississippi?

A Mississippi tenant may be able to change their own locks due to a lack of statutory guidance on the issue. That being said, a tenant who chooses to do so is not protected from retaliation by their landlord. So, it is best practice to always ask permission in advance and agree upon a system for providing the landlord in question with a new spare key.
