Create a solid, binding lease that complies with your state laws
If you rent out residential real estate, you need documents that are legally valid where your rental property is located--and every state's rules are different when it comes to landlord-tenant law. Typical form leases simply won't do the job. This book contains the key legal rental forms you need in your state, including:
fixed-term lease month-to-month rental agreement rental application tenant reference and credit check forms move-in and move-out letters, and property inspection checklist.
The 12th edition is completely updated to reflect the latest state landlord-tenant laws and issues such as restricting tenant sublets through short-term rental services. You'll find the key state‑specific rules you must include in your residential leases and rental agreements, including clauses covering security deposits, entry to rental property, late rent fees, termination notice requirements, and disclosures. All forms are downloadable through a special link in the book.
