This Article examines Nebraska’s “Uniform” Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (Nebraska’s Act or the Act), discusses recent attempts by the modern legislature to return balance to the laws governing residential tenancies, and offers guidance for continuing this effort. Part II of the Article offers an overview of landlord–tenant law and why protections are necessary in this unique consumer environment. Part III describes what went down in 1973–1974, when Nebraska’s Legislature adopted its version of the Act, and examines select provisions that were substantially and substantively modified from the Uniform Act. Finally, Part IV proposes options to obtain equilibrium and uniformity in the laws governing residential tenancies.
