You have the right to live anywhere you want to, as long as you can afford the rent and honor the terms of the lease. Wherever you choose to live, you have both rights and responsibilities, and so does your landlord. If both tenant and landlord follow the rules and do the right thing, a rented house or apartment becomes a safe and friendly place for you and your family to live. Help is available to find affordable housing or solve housing problems.
