Landlord-tenant relationships in Delaware are governed by two separate codes, the Residential Landlord-Tenant Code and the Mobile Home Lots and Leases Act. The Residential Landlord-Tenant Code, found beginning in Chapter 51 of Title 25 of the Delaware Code, generally applies to all private, non-commercial landlord-tenant relationships where the rental unit is not a mobile home in a mobile home park. The Mobile Home Lots and Leases Act, found at Chapter 70 of Title 25 of the Delaware Code, applies to the rental of a mobile home in a mobile home park.
All subsidized housing rentals in Delaware are governed by the Delaware Residential Landlord-Tenant Code. However, there are Federal regulations which also apply to these tenancies which may give the tenant greater or lesser rights in certain instances.
