Landlord/Tenant Law

What Is Ownership Disclosure?

Every written rental agreement must contain the name and address of the owner and the owner’s agent. If the owner is a corporation or partnership, the address must be the principal place of business in the County (or State) and must include the name of the person in charge at that location. In the case of an oral agreement, this information must be provided to the tenant in writing at the beginning of the tenancy. A landlord who does not disclose this information gives up the right to a notice before a tenant takes legal action under the Ohio Landlord­Tenant Law. Some municipalities have registration requirements before a landlord may offer a unit for rent. Check your local city hall.
