Which States Have the Best and Worst Laws for Renters?

The air conditioning system broke down 3 days ago in your rental apartment, it’s 100F degrees outside and more humid than the Amazonian rainforest. Your landlord has promised to repair it soon, but three days later he’s not even returning your phone calls. As much as you love the sauna, living in one day and night is not your idea of “home spa”. What can you do?

The answer depends on where you live. Your legal options can be very different from state to state. To find out exactly how different, we compared and contrasted landlord-tenant laws in 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. We focused on 10 common aspects of the landlord-tenant relationship, which include security deposits, rent increases, the warranty of habitability and eviction notices. We then created a ranking system based on the best and worst scenarios for renters and landlords (more on how we ranked the states in the Methodology section).

In Multifamily, Bigger Is Better

The Census Bureau released its Characteristics of New Housing report recently. My biggest takeaway from the report was how much the gap between for sale and rental housing construction has narrowed in recent years – most of this has come from the massive decline in for-sale housing construction, but multi-family completions are up substantially as well. However, there is also a big story within the multi-family data: the units that are getting built are increasingly in larger buildings. Bloomberg’s Justin Fox highlighted this trend in a couple of fascinating graphs that illustrate this striking trend.
