State Guides to Tenant Rights and Landlord-Tenant Law

Many state agencies publish useful tenant guides that explain the law in plain English, include sample forms, list local resources, and more. Many of these guides are published by state consumer protection agencies; others by a legal aid or state bar organization. They vary from a few pages of basic information to book-size guides to state law.  

Find your state guide below. Also, be sure to check resources available at state fair housing agencies.
