Key Terms in Leases & Rental Agreements

Leases and rental agreements set out the rules of the landlord-tenant relationship, many of which are covered by state law (and sometimes local law, such as rent control ordinances). State laws cover a wide range of issues that are included in leases and rental agreements, such as limits on security deposits and notice required for landlords to enter rental property.
