This book is fantastic for the experienced, as well as the inexperienced landlord. It sets out in plain English some of the common legal pitfalls landlords run into and how to avoid them. The books cites examples - some quite frightening - of how these pitfalls occur and the appropriate action to take. The book clearly outlines the differences in particular laws between the states. It explains all aspects of landlord law from finding goods tenants to dismissing bad tenants. The book makes a great desk reference and it's cheaper than a lawyer!

This is an excellenct source for anyone who intends to be a landlord. It provides detailed information on all aspects of renting out your home, including common mistakes to avoid. The forms in the back are especially helpful. If you have a personal computer, get the edition that comes with a disk. That way you can fill out all the necessary forms quickly and without hassles. We lent our copy to my brother, and now we have to order another copy for ourselves because he doesn't want to give it back!

I couldn't recommend this book ENOUGH! 3 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

This book has helped through every step of buying my first investment property. It's like having your own professional standing over your shoulder, reminding you about every detail of every step. The section on insurance alone is completely priceless, pointing out that a landlord needs not just property loss coverage but also personal liability. And not just physical liability, but coverage of potential slander, libel, discrimination, unlawful eviction, invasion of privacy suits... And don't forget loss of rents! It's that kind of detail that maybe someone who's done this before would call 'basic.' But I admit: I am no pro, yet when I called an insurance agent and explained what I wanted coverage for, he said to me,

Exactly what I was looking for. Encompassing, but not vague. 29 Oct 1999
By James W. Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Very Good. The author has done a great job of discussing many legal pitfalls of rental property, and how to avoid them. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming a landlord. The book provides everything from preventive measures when screening prospective tenants, to keeping good tenants, to removing poor tenants. It explores the many rights and responsibilities you have as a landlord. Explinations of laws are written in a no nonsence format. A Must Have.
