Can the landlord collect security and rental deposits, and are the amounts limited? Must contracts be for specified periods? Can either landlord or tenant terminate early, and what are the penalties for early termination? Does the tenant have a right to extend? Does the court system work? How long can it take to evict a tenant for non-payment of rent? For fuller details see the Data FAQ.
