Missouri Property and Real Estate Laws
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
Property and real estate laws affect renters and landlords as well as home owners (or prospective home owners). Most states, including Missouri, have "homestead" protection laws allowing property owners to protect a small parcel of property from creditors and adverse possession laws, which allow "continuous trespassers" to gain title to an otherwise abandoned piece of real estate. Additionally, Missouri law mandates that security deposits for rentals be returned within 30 days of lease termination.
