Connecticut Tenant Screening
Required Disclosures (by Landlords)
When rental is in a common interest community, landlord must give tenant written notice before signing a lease (Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. § 47a-3e)
Before the beginning of the tenancy, landlord must disclose the name and address of the person authorized to manage the premises and the person who is authorized to receive all notices, demands and service of process. (Conn. Gen. Stat. Ann. §47a-6)
A summary of the code, as prepared by the Consumer Protection Unit of the Attorney General’s office, must be given to tenants at the beginning of the rental term to prevent the tenant from pleading ignorance of the law in legal proceedings.
