Connecticut Landlord and Tenant Law, by Nobel F. Allen, covers the legal relationship between tenants and landlords, both in commercial and residential settings. It has been prepared as a desktop reference, with case law and statutory mandates, and includes MODEL FORMS for housing court and other landlord-tenant civil litigation. The forms (in print and on CD) are included in the purchase price of the book.

Published in October 2008, this single volume reference book is update bi-annually.


First section, Overview of Lease Construction and Interpretation, provides a general overview as well as the obligations of the landlord and tenant.


Second section, Summary Process Litigation, provides a statutory blueprint for prosecuting, defending and appealing an eviction action. Specific statutory requirements that are mandatory within summary process litigation are highlighted: from the elements of the KAPA notice, to the notice to quit, to the summary process execution.


Third section, Landlord Tenant Litigation, addresses non-summary process litigation. In this section, Noble addresses the difference between a nonpayment of rent action and a breach of lease action, as well as the statutory and common law formulas for calculating damages resulting from a breach of lease, and various other causes of action and defenses employed in civil landlord tenant litigation.


Valuable Appendices include an annotated glossary of common trigger provisions and concepts in commercial lease litigation and two sets of MODEL FORMS: housing court forms and other landlord-tenant related forms. The forms are also included on cd.
