IS LANDLORD FRIENDLY Ohio is more landlord-friendly than several oth- er Midwestern states. There’s no maximum security deposit. There’s no statute stating how much notice you must give before increasing rent. There is no law stating that a tenant must be allowed to make repairs and deduct said cost from the rent. You can evict a tenant three days after they’ve failed to pay the rent, and the lease can be terminated three days after notice that they’ve violated the lease. There’s no statute saying the landlord has to hold onto the abandoned property for weeks waiting for the tenant to get it. The Cincinnati housing market is one of the best in the area for real estate investors. •
