Maryland Renter Laws and Your Lease
No matter where you may choose to live in Maryland, make sure you are fully aware of your rights as a renter. For example, when you sign a lease with a landlord, there will be a set move-in date, often the first of the month. If for some reason, you cannot move in on the agreed upon date, perhaps the previous tenant has yet to move out, you not only can break the lease with written notification, but also, under Maryland law, the landlord is liable for any damages you may suffer as a result.
Speaking of leases, read any lease thoroughly before signing. Leases for rental houses in Maryland include such details as move-in and move-out dates, the amount of security deposit owed, and who is responsible for paying which utilities each month. This is important information that both parties must agree upon. Remember to keep a copy of your lease so that you can review these details as necessary.
Never Far From the Water
Maryland rests on the east coast of the country but does not have a large Atlantic shoreline. Even if you live inland, however, you will never be far from the water. If you wonder how this is possible, the answer is the Chesapeake Bay. The largest estuary in America, the bay is nearly two hundred miles long. Its waters are famous for crabs and oysters and offer wonderful, relaxing views anytime of the year.

Famous for its crab cakes and Johns Hopkins University, one of the best research schools in the world, Baltimore offers a fun nightlife and seaside feel without the high rents of cities like DC or Boston. Did you know that one of the country’s most important writers, Edgar Allan Poe, hails from Baltimore? The local NFL team, the Baltimore Ravens, is named after his famous poem.
