Landlord-tenant law is governed by state laws, and each state has slightly different requirements for both landlords and tenants. This affects all of the small details of the landlord-tenant relationships, such as whether tenants have a grace period for paying rent and how long that grace period is. State laws also regulate whether landlords and tenants can agree to something that is contrary to the prevailing law, and what lease provisions are legal. This section includes state-specific information about common landlord-tenant issues; a primer on federal housing; a helpful dictionary of landlord-tenant law terms; links to state anti-retaliation statutes; and more.
