As a landlord, there are laws that protect your rights, like the right to collect rent, withhold a security deposit in case of property damage, and evict tenants if rental agreement terms are breached. At the same time, you have a legal responsibility to provide your tenants with a safe and habitable rental unit, and to respond to repair requests in a reasonable time. This page includes a brief overview of some important issues to understand as a landlord.
