"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
Fixed-Term Residential Lease
Month-to-Month Residential Rental Agreement
Cancellation of Lease
Consent to Assignment of Lease
Notice of Needed Repairs
Tenant's Notice of Intent to Move Out

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.
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.
Robin Leonard is a former attorney who gave up the law to become a rabbi. She is the author of many Nolo books including Solve Your Money Troubles: Debt, Credit & Bankruptcy and Credit Repair. She also helped write How to File for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and A Legal Guide for Lesbian and Gay Couples.
