Does the Tenant Protection Act apply to me?

The law applies to renters who live in:

  • Most apartment buildings that were built at least 15 years ago
  • Duplexes that were built at least 15 years ago if the owner does not live on the other side
  • Single family houses that were built at least 15 years ago that are owned by a corporation

The law does not apply to some renters, including those who live in:

  • Housing that was built less than 15 years ago;
  • Some single family homes owned by individuals; and
  • Some types of Low-Income Housing, where the rents are kept lower by a deed or regulatory agreement; (Note: this does not include renters with a Section 8 voucher.)
  • Cities or counties where a local tenant protection ordinance applies.

This is not a complete list of who the law protects and who it does not apply to. Contact our local office to get more information about whether the law applies to you.
