Mississippi Commercial Landlord-Tenant Law
The Mississippi laws that govern commercial landlord-tenant relations are found in Title 89 – Chapter 7.
- Statute of Limitations: The statute of limitations for taking legal action over disputes regarding lease contracts is four years; however, a landlord may reduce this period by stating so in the written agreement, to no less than one year.
- Tenant Deserts Rented Land: Under Section 89-7-49 of the Mississippi Code, if a tenant deserts rented land, and leaves it unoccupied or uncultivated, then, the landlord can ask the constable of the county to view the land. If the land is deserted, the constable will post a notice in a conspicuous place that requires the tenant to pay the rent in arrears. If the tenant fails to pay the rent before a second visit of the constable in no less than five days and no more than 15 days later, the landlord can regain possession of the land.
