Landlord-Tenant Law

Landlord-tenant law rules commercial and residential property rental. The law is comprised mostly of state statutory and common law. Federal statutory law can take over in times of national or regional emergencies and in preventing some discrimination.

The foundation of the legal relationships between landlords and tenants is based in contract and property law. The tenant has a property interest in the land for a given period of time. The term of the tenancy may be for a given period, for an indefinite period, terminable at any time by landlord or tenant, or at sufferance if the contract is terminated and the tenant holds over. The tenant has the right to use and control the land, to prevent the landlord and others from entering, and to sublease or assign the property. The lease can waive or restrict these rights.
