Tenant rights vary by state, but include the right to safe and habitable housing, privacy, and non-discrimination.
Your rights as a renter start the moment you start looking for somewhere to rent and don’t end until you get your security deposit back.
Renters’ rights dictate that a landlord must make immediate repairs if a unit is unlivable or substantially uninhabitable.
You’ll need to hire a landlord-tenant lawyer if you’re defending yourself from being sued by your landlord, or if you’re suing your landlord.
