How to Rent Deposit when Housing Conditions are a Problem

Back

In Ohio, if a landlord refuses to make necessary repairs within a reasonable amount of time, a tenant can “rent deposit.”

“Rent deposit” or “rent escrow” means a tenant can pay rent to a court, instead of the landlord.

The tenant must be very careful to follow certain rules when paying rent to a court. If a tenant stops paying rent because the property needs repairs, the tenant risks an eviction for non-payment of rent. Instead of refusing to pay the rent, a tenant should follow the rent deposit procedure.
