Does The Law Apply To Me?

It applies to all renters, roomers, landlords and those who act for them, except:


  • hospitals, group homes, schools or other institutions
  • employees of the landlord who receive housing for their work and live on the worksite
  • tenants owning or partly owning the unit
  • rental of a unit in a motel or hotel and the landlord pays special tax on the room

There are other exceptions to the law. If you have a doubt, please call a lawyer.
