What is 'Landlord'

A real estate owner who rents or leases land or a building to another party, known as a tenant. The landlord will often provide the necessary maintenance or repairs during the rental period, while the tenant is responsible for the cleanliness and general upkeep of the property.

A female landlord may be referred to as a "landlady."

Explaining 'Landlord'

For real estate investors, becoming a landlord can be a profitable venture. It often provides a steady stream of income from the renter, while maintaining ownership over a property that is likely to appreciate in value.

FAQ


What is the law of rent?

The law of rent states that the rent of a land site is equal to the economic advantage obtained by using the site in its most productive use, relative to the advantage obtained by using marginal (i.e., the best rent-free) land for the same purpose, given the same inputs of labor and capital.

Who formulated this law?

David Ricardo formulated this law around 1821 and presented it in its most developed form in his magnum opus "On Principles of Political Economy and Taxation". This is where he coined the term Ricardian Rent.

What does Ricardo's formulation say about rent?

It says that economic rent arises from differences between locations or sites. In other words, it arises from differences between locations or sites that are not due to differences in their natural qualities but rather due to location-specific advantages such as access to markets or transportation routes. These advantages are often referred to as locational rents.
