Landlord/Tenant Law Archives

Security deposits in Delaware

Throughout the state of Delaware, tenants have legal rights under the law. Understanding these rights can help renters protect themselves from illegal actions on behalf of landlords or other parties. The rights granted to renters extend across all income levels and most types of rental units to include subsidize housing. The one exception to the law pertains to mobile homes located in mobile home parks, but these renters have protections under another act.

Termination of a rental agreement by the landlord

In Delaware, a landlord cannot terminate a rental agreement without first giving the tenant proper notice of the termination. It's also important to know that a rental agreement cannot be effective for longer than one year unless the agreement was in writing. If there was no formal rental agreement concerning a property, both the landlord and the tenant should assume that the agreement is month-to-month.
