Landlord And Tenant

The landlord is the owner of a rental property and the tenant is the renter of the property.  The landlord and tenant usually execute a lease agreement stipulating the responsibilities of each party and the term.

The laws regulating what can be put into a lease agreement and defining the basic responsibilities of each party including how evictions are handled vary from State to State.

The landlord is required to provide possession of the property to the tenant and generally disclose known defects, maintain common areas, repair hazardous conditions and maintain the property in a habitable condition.

The tenant is required to pay the rent, keep the property in an undamaged condition and abide by other terms of the lease such as parking restrictions and the acceptable use of the property.

Should the landlord fail to make repairs to maintain the property in habitable condition, some States allow the tenant to withhold rent, sue the landlord or even break the lease agreement.  In some States with rent controls, the landlord may be restricted as to how much the rent can be increased over time.
