Landlord Rights

Welcome to the Landlord Rights section of FindLaw's Real Estate Center. Tenants often enjoy legal processes designed to protect their right to stay in their homes. However, the landlord still owns the building. It is the landlord who pays for the building, and consequently most states work to protect landlords' investments. Here you will find legal information and tips on legal issues related to renting out your residential property to a tenant, including lease agreements; evictions; property repairs; return of security deposits; and more. Check out FindLaw's Guide to the Eviction Process for Landlords for a printer-friendly reference guide to the challenging process of eviction.
