Landlords need a fair and fast eviction process. Delayed evictions can cause landlords to continuously lose money and experience property damage until unruly tenants are forced out.
States with higher tax rates will require landlords to pay more property taxes. Look for states with property tax rates at or below the national average.
The intention is to prevent exorbitant rent that could leave tenants without a home, landlords should have enough room to recover inflation and cost increases for property maintenance such as utilities and taxes.
Landlords need security deposits if a tenant vacates the rental property without paying rent owing, the rental unit has property damage, or other tenant issues that cause landlords financial harm.
