Federal, State, and Local Laws
It is very common for renters and landlords alike to assume they know more than they do about the law because they truly do have vast experience. In reality, federal, state and local laws can apply to your unique situation. And the laws change all the time.
For instance, the Fair Housing Act is a federal law that covers most housing but there are some exceptions. If you are a tenant or looking for a place to rent, you need to know if your situation is covered before you commit. On the other hand, as discrimination laws evolve to keep up with our constantly changing society, longtime landlords may find themselves suddenly in violation of the law.
A local landlord tenant law firm can clarify discrepancies for you and help you stay in compliance with ever-changing laws.
