There are bound to be disagreements between a landlord and tenant at some point during the duration of a lease, but many legal questions and problems can be solved without a lawyer if both parties understand the basics of state law. To become better informed and avoid legal conflict, here is an overview of key landlord-tenant laws in Missouri, provided by Nolo, a publisher of do-it-yourself legal guides:

Missouri Security Deposit Limit and Return

Missouri state law limits how much a landlord can charge for a security deposit (two months’ rent), when it must be returned (within 30 days after a tenant moves), and sets other restrictions on deposits.

Small Claims Lawsuits in Missouri

Tenants can sue landlords in small claims court for the return of their deposit, up to a dollar amount of $5,000.

Missouri Rent Rules

State law regulates several rent-related issues, including how much time (five days in Missouri) a tenant has to pay overdue rent or move before a landlord can file for eviction.

Missouri Termination and Eviction Rules

State laws specify when and how a landlord may terminate a tenancy. For example, a landlord may give a Missouri tenant who has used the premises for gambling, prostitution, or possession, sale, or distribution of controlled substances an unconditional quit notice that gives the tenant 10 days to move out before the landlord can file for eviction. 

Landlord Access to Rental Property, Tenant Protection Against Retaliation, and Other State Laws in Missouri

Several other landlord-tenant laws in Missouri affect both property owners and renters, including:

  • procedures for how landlords must handle abandoned property left behind by tenants, and
  • fair housing rights (discrimination is also prohibited by federal and, often, local law.
