Editorial Reviews

Review

"If landlords nationwide were to recommend [this] book to renters, I'd bet only half of today's landlord/tenant problems would exist in the future." -- Orlando Sentinel

"Well written, well researched and practical describe this thorough rental-law guide book. On my scale of one to 10, this outstanding book rates an off-the-chart 12." -- Robert Bruss,nationally syndicated columnist

"This lively, practical and occasionally humorous new book... is another in the Nolo series that makes learning about legal topics interesting and almost fun." -- San Jose Mercury News

Format: Paperback
Attorney Janet Portman and Marcia Stewart's RENTER'S RIGHTS: THE BASICS skips legal lingo in favor of a standard updated coverage pairing legal information with typical renter issues, from paying rents and understanding security deposits to negotiating leases, handling roommates and added names, and dealing with landlords over maintenance issues. A 'must' for any renter, landlord, or general-interest library reference collection.

She covers everything in this book. Tells you where to find more info for your state. One or two topics were a little too brief but not important areas. A good book to familiarize you with renter pitfalls. We had a bad experience which caused me to but this. Very helpful, indeed. I recommend buying it before you ever have a problem for landlords will try to circumvent the law and this pretty well ruins such attempts. She urges good caution as well. Sensible advice. Get it today so you don't get taken or ripped off with a bad lease term. Know your rights or you won't have any.

Format: Paperback
Renter's Rights was a great book to read before going to see apartments. I was able to formulate questions and anticipate problems that could arise. The leasing agent was impressed with how prepared I was with such detailed questions. She could tell I had done my homework. This is a great reference for before and after renting an apartment. A thorough reading is not necessary, merely glancing will still provide you with a lot of helpful information.

Be prepared! Read this first.
