  • I'm sure it's different in each state, and/or city. I would just google your city for renters rights. You can also call your city hall for information.

  • What state are you in?????
    google "Renters rights" and click on your states site....
    Each state is different with some basics that are the same (bc of US Gov reasons)
    Also this I know... you should have received a Tenant/Landlord book/guide at the time of
    lease signing...

  • It varies by state and sometimes city. Here in Pennsylvania at least, there is no law that says we (the landlord) have to provide anything other then a copy of the lease and a lead disclosure form if the house was built before 1978. We are landlords and own quite a few units and discuss things with a lawyer on a regular basis and have a lease written by him so we know our state laws fairly well. I would google your specific question and state to get answers. Also www.rentlaw.com is a pretty decent site for a lot of things.

  • Agreed that it varies by state. Looking it up online would be the best way to find info for your particular state. Like PP said rentlaw.com is a good site.
