"But you told me when I rented this place that...!"

Dealing with a landlord or property manager can be challenging, to say the least. Doing it successfully requires not only knowing your rights under landlord-tenant law, but also, if necessary, asserting them. It also means coping with your landlord's business policies and idiosyncrasies.

Whether you rent (or own) property, you already know just how bad a failed landlord-tenant relationship can be. But here's an excellent way to get any landlord-tenant relationship off to a good start and minimize the possibility of future misunderstandings and legal problems: use the downloadable eForms in this kit to put all agreements and concerns in writing.

This kit contains the nine forms you'll need to put your concerns in writing. And although most of these agreements are geared toward tenants, conscientious landlords will also find them useful.

The eGuide includes:

  • Dispute Resolution Clause
  • Apartment-Finding Service Checklist
  • Rental Application
  • Fixed-Term Residential Lease
  • Month-to-Month Residential Rental Agreement
  • Cancellation of Lease
  • Consent to Assignment of Lease
  • Landlord-Tenant Checklist
  • Notice of Needed Repairs
  • Tenant's Notice of Intent to Move Out

And when you buy this eGuide, you can download it immediately and skip the shipping charges. Grab yours today!

About the Author

  • Ralph Warner

    Ralph "Jake" Warner, a pioneer of the do-it-yourself law movement, founded Nolo with Ed Sherman in 1971. Nolo began publishing do-it-yourself law books written by Jake and his colleagues after numerous publishers rejected them. When personal computers came along, he added software to many Nolo books. When the Internet arrived, he championed the move online, where Nolo published huge amounts of free legal information.

    In addition to running Nolo for much of its first 40 years, Warner was an active editor and author. He wrote many books, including Retire Happy: What You Can Do Now to Guarantee a Great Retirement and Save Your Small Business: 10 Crucial Strategies to Survive Hard Times or Close Down & Move On. Today, he operates a storytelling repertory group, Jake's Tales, devoted to keeping alive the tradition of telling children wonderful stories.

    Warner holds a law degree from Boalt Hall School of Law at the University of California at Berkeley and an undergraduate degree in history from Princeton.
