Some of the across-the-board regulations include:

•Landlords must give tenants notice before entering a rental premises (generally one to two days)

•Tenants must uphold certain maintenance obligations

•Tenants are responsible for the behaviors of any and all guests they invite to the property

•The agreement can’t be changed without the permission of both parties involved (or failing that the due diligence of one party to meet specified guidelines for amending the agreement)
