Residential & Commercial Landlord-Tenant

Landlord-tenant law can either be residential or commercial. If commercial, Delaware common law controls the case. But if the relationship is for residential property, the Delaware Landlord-Tenant Code applies. The Delaware Landlord-Tenant Code is filled with traps for the uninformed. The Code, for example, requires the landlord to give the tenant a copy (a summary is acceptable) of the Code. If it is not given to the tenant, the tenant can plead ignorance of the law. This is one of the only times that a person can claim ignorance of the law and prevail.
