Landlord Legal Responsibilities

This act states that landlords cannot create unfair rules in legal agreements, retaliate against tenants who exercise these fair housing rights, prevent tenants from inspecting housing, and also must maintain a safe and maintained premise at all times. A tenant must use and operate in a reasonable manner on the property. They also must make sure that all fixtures are clean and in good repair and comply with all building, housing, and health codes to keep the dwelling clean and safe.
