We’ve worked with experienced landlords, legal researchers and landlord-tenant attorneys to put together comprehensive, state-by-state guides that cover each step in the rental process. These guides are designed to answer any questions you might have as a landlord about what you are and aren't allowed to do according to your state's laws. Wondering how much you can ask a tenant to put down as a security deposit? Or what questions you should avoid asking during the tenant screening process? You’ve come to the right place.
How to navigate these guides
When it comes to your responsibilities as a landlord, a lot depends on where you live. We built our guides, and our entire knowledge base, to reflect that. Every topic or question is answered at the federal level with an overview of any applicable laws across various states. Read the overview then choose the state where you own rentals to see more customized guidance.
