Many people are surprised to learn that there are comprehensive laws regulating the relationship between landlords and residential tenants. Among other things, these laws regulate the wording and content of leases, establish requirements as to the condition of the rental property and control the refund of security deposits. In addition, if a tenant breaches a lease, a large number of court rules become relevant both prior to and during the eviction process.
