Tips for renting in Baltimore, MD

If Charm City is the place for you, make sure to learn a few things about the city's renter’s rights before your big move.

For example, a landlord who wants you to leave after your lease is up must give you 60 days’ written notice. If you remain in the residence beyond that time, the landlord can evict you, or choose to charge you double your rent.

If you live in a building that houses more than three families, the landlord must provide and maintain smoke detectors in the unit. However, if you live in a smaller building, such as a free-standing house, duplex, or triplex, you'll be responsible for taking care of the smoke detectors yourself.
