Ohio Eviction and Landlord-Tenant Law (5th ed. 2015)

UntitledOhio Eviction and Landlord-Tenant Law (5th ed. 2015) is a practitioner's manual.   It is a manual principally for attorneys (and advocates) who represent or counsel tenants or landlords, and for judges and magistrates who hear eviction actions or other residential landlord tenant cases.   Of course, it is a manual for tenants and landlords as well.

The fifth edition updates and expands the book's overviews and analyses of: (1) Ohio statutes and case law on eviction actions, residential tenancies, manufactured home parks, and land installment contracts; and (2) Ohio case law and federal statutes and regulations on HUD-assisted rental housing programs, relative to eviction actions and terminations of participation in the Housing Choice Voucher program.   These overviews and analyses address procedure and practice issues, as well as potential claims, defenses, and remedies.
