Landlord is the owner of a rental property, such as an apartment building or a house. The landlord is responsible for maintaining the property and collecting rent from tenants. Landlords may also be responsible for advertising the property and finding tenants, as well as screening applicants and negotiating leases. In some cases, landlords may also be responsible for providing services to tenants, such as maintaining common areas or arranging for repairs and maintenance. Landlords typically earn income from the rent paid by tenants, and may also be able to generate additional income from the property through appreciation in value or other means.
