My pick for most landlord-friendly: Arkansas
No just cause for evictions and quick evictions.

Criminal Notice to Vacate | Jason Bolden

Least landlord-friendly: California
I live in a rent-controlled city. Almost always need just cause.

What are your thoughts on the most friendly and least friendly states to the landlord?

I've heard horror stories about California. I only know the laws in Texas. That's where all my experience has been. I do know that if the laws are followed and proper steps taken, I can get an eviction ion under 30 days. Fine with me.
I've done an eviction a few times. Most of the Texas laws are fair and not one sided to LL or tenant.

I think the LL laws in CA are actually pretty fair. To OP's point, the just cause in rent control is to keep people from faking a reason to get a tenant to leave so the LL can raise the rent past the amount set in the rent control amount. Rent control has good and bad for both sides.
