SALT, (State and Local Taxes), has become a familiar term for business owners that operate in multiple states; however, taxes are not the only area of compliance that businesses that operate over state borders need to be concerned with.

Property managers that lease residential units or apartments need to be aware of the state regulations pertaining to landlord and tenant’s rights and obligations.  Each state’s business regulation department provides guidance pertaining to the Landlord/Tenant relationship and just like state taxes, these regulations vary from state to state.

Some of the key topics pertaining to the Landlord/Tenant relationship are summarized below for the Tri-state area of Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Massachusetts.  For more detailed information please refer to the individual state’s business regulations that can be located at the websites indicated at the top of the chart.
