What Is a Landlord-Tenant Law?

In essence, a landlord-tenant law is a set of statutes that govern certain activities that both landlords and tenants participate in during the course of a leasing relationship. These types of laws cover a wide array of topics, including what conditions constitute a “habitable” space as well as how long a landlord has to make necessary repairs. These laws also set forth statewide standards for how evictions can be carried out and how much a landlord can charge as a security deposit.
