State Rules on Required Landlord Disclosures

Find your state's laws on required landlord disclosures.

Many states require landlords to inform tenants of important state laws or individual landlord policies, either in the lease or rental agreement or in another written document. Common disclosures include a landlord’s imposition of nonrefundable fees (where permitted), tenants’ rights to move-in checklists, shared utility arrangements (if any), and the identity of the landlord or landlord’s agent or manager. Some states also require specific disclosures regarding the landlord’s use of security deposits. Read your state statute for the specific rules in your state. The citation is provided here, and you can visit the Library of Congress's legal research site for links to state statutes.
