Landlord – Tenant

The landlord-tenant relationship is unique. Most states, including North Dakota, provide statutory rights and obligations that govern the landlord-tenant relationship. Regardless of what a lease says, North Dakota law controls. If you are a landlord, it is important to understand what you legally can and cannot do. If a landlord violates North Dakota law, the tenant can potentially collect penalties and attorney fees. Our attorneys have extensive experience advising landlords and tenants in residential, agricultural, commercial, and industrial contexts. We can help you to ensure your operation runs as smoothly as possible.

Our landlord – tenant law experience includes:

  • Drafting and reviewing all types of leases
  • Notices of termination of leases (e.g., three-day notices)
  • Evictions and forcible detainer lawsuits
  • Security deposit letters
  • Litigation regarding property damage
