Ohio State Laws Affecting Tenants in Domestic Violence Situations

Find out Ohio rules on state laws that protect tenants who are victims of domestic violence.

Ohio does not have a statute extending special protections to tenants who are the victims of domestic violence. If you are facing a domestic violence situation (including stalking) and want to move, check with local police or a battered women’s shelter regarding resources and services in your area, including how to get a temporary restraining order (TRO) from a court. For information and referrals to local agencies, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-SAFE. This organization’s website also includes links to state coalitions against domestic violence. Another useful resource is WomensLaw.org, which includes extensive information on state laws relevant to domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
