Landlord-Tenant Laws

Eviction Laws and Renters’ Rights
2021 Edition

This collection of Landlord-Tenant laws apply to residential (non-commercial) rentals only. The references were compiled from each state’s civil codes and various online sources to serve as a reference for people wanting to learn about landlord-tenant laws, eviction laws, and renters’ rights for specific states.

However, this guide is not comprehensive as state, local and municipal statutes can change at any time. Given its limitations, these guides are not an adequate substitute for legal advice from a knowledgeable lawyer.

If you are dealing with a landlord-tenant issue, you should seek guidance from a qualified attorney.


Every business must operate within the confines of the law- the same is true for private landlords and their rental businesses. Here we have compiled a list of landlord-tenant laws by state for your reference. Laws are continually updated and can vary by city and county as well as by state. While we have made our best effort to ensure this information is accurate and up to date, please verify the source and have your official documents and policies reviewed by an attorney.
