What Are Renter’s Rights?
As a whole, renter’s rights are protection, enshrined in the law, that make sure that any residence is held to certain standards. Judges have established case law and legislatures have issued statutes to ensure that renters do not have to fight landlords by themselves.
The first renter’s right is the right to live in a habitable home. This means that there shouldn’t be any unsafe conditions, such as a lack of running water, bad wiring, or a lack of running water. Substantial infestations of rats or cockroaches may also constitute a violation of this right.
The second renter’s right involves discrimination. Landlords are not allowed to discriminate against current or prospective tenants on the basis of their gender, familial status, race, ethnicity, national origin, or their disability status. This includes advertising that would exclude any of these protected characteristics.
The third renter’s right is the right to privacy. Just because the landlord owns the building doesn’t mean that they can just barge in whenever they want. As a tenant, you have a right to a reasonable level of privacy. This means that a landlord must give you notice if they need access to your property.
These are just a few of the rights that a renter has, protected by the law.
