Iowa Property and Real Estate Laws
Welcome to FindLaw's property and real estate law section for Iowans, which covers legal issues pertaining to landlords, tenants, and property owners in the state. Iowa statutes limit the amount a landlord may require for a security deposit, prohibit discrimination against current and prospective renters and homeowners, and regulate other aspects of these contractual relationships and processes. In addition, the state has adverse possession laws that allow individuals who inhabit and improve an otherwise neglected piece of property to gain legal title.
