What is Landlord-Tenant law? Landlord-tenant law is the collection of federal, state and local laws that dictate the duties as well as the rights of both the lessor and the lessee in a residential lease agreement. This complex set of regulations helps protect the interests of both parties and ensures the property being leased is maintained in good condition.

The Residential Lease is the legal contract between the landlord and tenant.
