Landlord-Tenant Law

Being a rental property owner or landlord can be one of the most thankless, stress-inducing jobs on the planet. Landlords must navigate through the complex and technical worlds of Ohio Law, Fair Housing restrictions and code violations. Add the sometimes aggravating behavior of tenants, legal fees and court costs to this mixture, and some landlords begin to question whether owning rental property is even worth the hassle.
