Landlords and the Law - Forms and Resources

Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors.

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' (homeowners') investments.

Still, it's not always easy to navigate the various landlord-tenant laws and ordinances on the books. To help landlords with this tast, here you will find links to residential lease forms, state-specific landlord-tenant laws, federal housing information, and more.
