Landlord/Tenant Law

What About Drug Activity In Rental Housing?

In 1990, Ohio added provisions to the Landlord Tenant Law which require landlords to evict tenants when the landlord has information from a law enforcement officer, based on a legal search, that the tenant, the tenant’s guest, or a member of the tenant’s household is involved in drug activity in connection with the premises. In some municipalities, landlords may be held liable for repeated drug violations in their properties.
