Consumerist has compiled a great resource of landlord-tenant laws by state. If you’re preparing to relocate after school or are just moving into your first apartment, it might be worth your while to know what you’re getting into before signing a lease. From apartment sharing regulations to when you can legally expect the heating to kick in, you’ll find a bunch of important stuff amidst the legalese. If you’re already in an apartment and need to regulate on your landlord, make sure you know your rights before you go barging in with guns blazing. It might also be worth tracking down the Tenants Union in your state in case you need backup (e.g., New York).
