Kentucky Property and Real Estate Laws
Tenants, landlords, and property owners are bound (and protected) by several property and real estate laws. Kentucky and other state laws limit the amount of money a landlord can charge for a security deposit and certain contractual terms of the lease agreement, prohibit discrimination, and regulate other aspects of the relationship. States also enforce adverse possession (or "squatters' rights") laws that allow continuous trespassers to gain title to an otherwise abandoned piece of real estate after inhabiting it for a certain period of time.
