The rights and duties of landlords and tenants in Minnesota are spelled out in federal law, state statutes, local ordinances, safety and housing codes, common law, contract law, and a number of court decisions. These responsibilities can vary from place to place around the state.
This can be a bit overwhelming, not only to first time tenants, but even to seasoned landlords. There are many things to consider when renting/leasing a home.
• Initial inspection
• Background checks
• Lease agreement
• Rent (payments, late fees, etc.)
• Security deposits
This is just a small sample of some of the things that can come up when leasing or renting a property. Fortunately, Thomason, Swanson & Zahn is here to help you as you start or continue this endeavor. Call us today 218-303-9549 to speak with our expert legal team.
