You are a landlord if you lease real property to an individual or business entity. An individual or business entity that leases real property is a tenant.
A lease may be oral or in writing. During the term of the lease, the tenant has the right to possession of and use of the property. When a lease is terminated, a landlord has certain rights and duties with respect to any security deposit paid by the tenant and eviction of the tenant if the lease termination was not by agreement. There are many issues that arise in this area of law and Parker Stanbury has attorneys familiar with all of them.
