Tenants have a right to a safe and habitable living environment, to privacy, to timely repairs and maintenance, to reasonable notice before entry by the landlord, to a return of their security deposit, and to be free from discrimination.
What are the rights of landlords in a rental property?
Landlords have a right to receive rent payments on time, to screen potential tenants, to enter the property for necessary repairs or maintenance, to terminate a lease agreement for non-payment or other breaches, and to evict tenants who violate the terms of the lease.
Can a landlord evict a tenant without a court order?
No, landlords cannot evict tenants without a court order. They must follow the legal eviction process, which includes providing proper notice to the tenant and filing an eviction lawsuit in court.
Can a landlord raise the rent at any time?
No, landlords cannot raise the rent during the term of a lease agreement unless the lease allows for rent increases or both parties agree to the increase. After the lease term has expired, landlords may raise the rent with proper notice to the tenant.

What should I do if I have a problem with my landlord or tenant?
