The author examines the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, which is currently being considered for adoption by the Maryland General Assembly. The Act codifies the recent judicial tendency to treat the landlord-tenant relationship as one governed by contract principles rather than by the principles governing the conveyance of estates in land. The article's major emphasis is on the potential impact of the Act on the common law and the present Maryland statutes governing the landlord-tenant relationship.
