Rent, Deposits, and Evictions

HomeLawsRent, Deposits, and Evictions

Most laws about rent, deposits, and evictions are made by the state, and the rules vary heavily. Landlords are generally allowed to raise the rent (subject to rent control laws) at the end of a lease. Tenants that fail to pay rent may be evicted, but landlords must follow a strict procedure to do so. Evictions for other reasons may be prohibited. Some states let tenants withhold rent or deduct costs for repairs when the apartment is in bad condition.
