Landlord and Tenant Law, Part 2

Landlord-tenant disputes are common in the renting process. In fact, complaints and inquiries about landlord-tenant issues rank among the top 10 complaints received by the Attorney General each year. However, many of the most common disputes could be avoided if landlords and tenants were simply more aware of their rights and responsibilities.

Extensive changes have been made to the landlord-tenant law, and a newly revised consumer guide outlining the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants is now available. The guide, Missouri’s Landlord-Tenant Law, offers the newest information on repairs, security deposits and leases, the general obligations of landlords and tenants, and reasons for eviction.

To order a free copy of the landlord-tenant guide, call the Missouri Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-392-8222.
