Landlord and tenant law governs any issues having to do with renting commercial and residential property and is made up of primarily the common law and statutory laws. Federal statutory laws will come into play in cases of national or regional emergencies and in landlord-tenant disputes that involve some type of discrimination.

Often times, tenants and landlords will argue over issues such as upkeep of property, raising of the rent, noise, trespassing, lease and privacy issues. If you have lived in an apartment building or some other residence in which you had to answer to a landlord, you know full well that problems can arise and heated arguments can take place. If a dispute between a tenant and a landlord becomes very serious, legal action may need to be taken. If the police are called and charges are made against one or more parties, you may have a criminal case on your hands.
