Montana Residential Tenant and Landlord Act

Find the statutes you need

There are three chapters in Montana code that primarily pertain to the Landlord/Tenant relationship. Use the links below to navigate the state law database and learn about your rights and responsibilities as a renter, and what to do if the landlord fails to uphold their end of the agreement. It’s strongly recommended that you read each section of code in its entirety prior to taking action. If you have a specific question feel free to contact us.

For additional assistance on how these laws apply to you please find your complaint to the left.
