The following documents cover the basics regarding Landlord/Tenant Rights and Responsibilities.  It’s recommended to review these documents before proceeding to the grander document library.

Landlord-Tenant Information forms and publications available from this website are intended to assist both residential landlords and tenants to understand their rights and responsibilities.  The principal publication is Truth in Renting, which is available in both English and Spanish.  Landlords are required to distribute Truth in Renting to their tenants.

The booklet is available free and may be downloaded from this website (see link above). Both landlords and tenants may print copies directly from this website for distribution.
