Landlord’s rights are a collection of abilities codified in federal, state, or municipal law. When considering what actions an be taken it is important to consider what landlord’s rights are available as well as how they may be enforced.

What Are Landlord’s Rights?

Landlord’s rights cover a number of issues regarding the use of their property and largely focus on issues that arise before or after the lease has been signed. Before the lease is signed, landlords have the right to screen applicants, to collect a security deposit, or to accept payment for amenities or other fees.

Once the lease is signed, landlords also retain rights to enter the property with notice or in an emergency, as well as the permission to evict tenants who violate the lease. Additional rights may be given to landlords depending on the state, county, or city that property is located in.

When a landlord feels that they are unable to exercise their rights over their property, they do have options for enforcement. Primarily, landlords can seek to enforce their rights through the court system. In the most extreme examples, landlords can enforce their right to enter the residence or remove a tenant through the use of law enforcement.
