What types of rights should a tenant be aware of?

Understanding Tenant Rights

When you want to find a home for rent, there are a number of tenant rights that you should be aware of to ensure that landlord responsibilities are met during that arrangement. While California renter's rights and California tenant rights may vary from the rights of renters in Boston or Chicago, there are some basic renter's rights that fall into specific categories related to homes and rental arrangements.

A home for rent must fulfill obligations on tenant rights in such areas as how to market homes for rent, unlawful discrimination against certain types of tenants, rights of renters in terms of how a lease or rental agreement is worded and explained, and renter's rights while living in the home for rent. Then, there are other areas, such as dealing with problems while in the rental homes, having repairs made as part of the landlord responsibilities, moving out, dealing with eviction, and receiving refunds on security deposits. Knowing your rights as a renter will ensure that you do not get taken advantage by a landlord and that you have a smooth rental relationship with your landlord.
