As a landlord for over 30 years and teaching classes on the subject in two different schools, this is one book that I have found invaluable as a resource for wannabe and experienced landlords. Don't think you know it all no matter what you read, learn, experience... I'm still picking up tips and hints! Much of my curriculum was already covered in this book but still there was more to use and learning from each other is the way to go! Very happy to see this book on the market and in laymen's terms and with the prominent hints and smiles to make it easy reading.

I bought this book as a novice in the rental business hoping to find information that would get me started out on the right foot. I WAS QUITE DISAPPOINTED. I will not go as far as to say that this book is worthless; there are some useful tidbits of information that i found helpful, but there are other books out there that are so much better. I strongly suggest LANDLORDING, by Leigh Robinson (Ninth Edition or newer). It's available on amazon, of course.

There was a point in my life that I was lost as to what to do or, more importantly, not to do, but with this book under my belt, I know feel like Super Landlord. It answered all the questions that I had and even some that I didn't. I would not only suggest this book to first-time Landlords, but to those of you who have been around the block for a while.

Great (economical) book to have on hand when becoming a landlord for the first time. Eventhough it was copyrighted in yr. 2000, it has lots and lots of good advice in it, in other words, you get your moneys' worth!
I am sure there are many, more inclusive, books on the market, this one suits me just fine - have only one tenant - a good one.
Would definitely recommend reading up on landlord-ing!

This book provides good basics on what to expect as a landlord and what to do under different situations. It doesn't go into too much detail. This is apt for someone starting new and needs to know overall aspects of landlording.
