South Dakota Required Landlord Disclosures

Learn about the disclosures that landlords in South Dakota must provide tenants, usually in the lease or rental agreement.

South Dakota requires landlords to make the following disclosure to tenants:

Meth labs. Landlord who has actual knowledge of the existence of any prior manufacturing of methamphetamines on the premises must disclose that information to any lessee or any person who may become a lessee. If the residential premises consists of two or more housing units, the disclosure requirements apply only to the unit where there is knowledge of the existence of any prior manufacturing of methamphetamines.

Check the South Dakota statute (S.D. Codified Laws Ann. § 43-32-30) for details on these disclosures. See the Laws and Legal Research section of Nolo for advice on finding and reading statutes and court decisions.

Also, check your local ordinance for any city or county disclosure requirements. To find yours, check your city or county website (many are listed on State and Local Government on the Net), or contact the office of your mayor, city manager, or county administrator.

Finally, see the Required Landlord Disclosures article for details on federally-required landlord disclosures and other information on disclosures about the rental property.
