This brochure was prepared by Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc. for the purpose of informing landlords and tenants of their rights and responsibilities. It attempts to summarize current Idaho law. It does not include legal theories which have been adopted by other states but as of yet not accepted by Idaho’s courts. At several points in the brochure, the tenant is advised to seek the legal assistance of an attorney. If you are a tenant who is having difficulties with your landlord, it is best to see an attorney. If you are a tenant, cannot afford an attorney, and meet certain income guidelines, you may be entitled to free legal assistance from Idaho Legal Aid Services. The addresses and phone numbers of the area offices are listed at the end
of this brochure.
