Ingram Publishing Services 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:
month-to-month rental agreement
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. Anyone who owns or manages residential real estate, anywhere in the U.S., should buy this book, as it provides a solid lease, that can be tailored to the laws of a specific state, and the key rental documents needed to start a tenancy.
