There are numerous laws governing the landlord-tenant relationship. How much can be charged for a security deposit or tenant screening fee? What is the proper amount of notice for ending a tenancy? How should one address suspected illegal activity? Luckily, the Minnesota Landlords and Tenants Rights and Responsibilities booklet, provided by the Attorney General’s Office, will give Minnesota residents and landlords all of the information they need to know about the rights and responsibilities of both parties in an agreement.

Minnesota law requires that all landlords and property owners must inform their residential tenants that the Minnesota Landlords and Tenants-Rights and Responsibilities handbook is available to them. Additionally, the document must be provided to tenants at least 30 days prior to initiating any court action, except for non-payment of rent. This informational booklet supplies landlords and tenants with all of the information they need to know before entering in a tenancy, during and after.

A landlord may give this form to each tenant at the beginning of a tenancy, ideally at lease signing. The handbook is in a simple PDF format and can be saved for review at any time. The Minnesota Landlords and Tenants-Rights and Responsibilities handbook includes everything you and your tenants need to know. From information regarding background checks, to maintenance and repairs, to holdover tenants, subleasing, and eviction – this handbook covers all of these topics and more. It is a perfect resource not only for tenants, but also for landlords to remain up-to-date on their rights and responsibilities and can serve as a guideline when making decisions or interacting with tenants.

This document can also be included as an addendum to the lease agreement for easy accessibility. The handbook includes the contact information for the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office, as well as a directory of numerous other resources.
