This is a practical, well-organized manual for how to be a good landlord and avoid some of the pitfalls of owning rental property. Sample leases and rental agreements, information about liability, discrimination, repairs, and maintenance, and how to deal with problem tenants fairly and legally are all contained in here. Maybe if more landlords read this book, more tenants would feel like they and the owner are not intrinsic adversaries. Even though we get along quite well, and have for the last 22 years, I lent my copy to my landlord--for the other tenants' sakes! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From Library Journal
This new title is a thorough and pragmatic examination of the legal issues that confront landlords of residential real property. In 17 chapters, it covers such topics as rent, discrimination, working with property managers, landlord liability, tenants, privacy rights, and security deposits. The chapters summarize the law and explain it with true-to-life illustrations. Icons are used to point out a practical tip, a question that might need a lawyer's interpretation, or an instance in which a rent-control ordinance might apply. The book is liberally sprinkled with sample agreements, letters, and lists of specific state requirements with regard to landlord/tenant laws. Forms to help with rent applications, tenant references, security deposit itemization, and safety and maintenance updates, to name a few, appear in print at the end of the book and on an accompanying 3.5" DOS-based computer disk. Every Landlord's Legal Guide makes plain the important legal concepts and provides real guidance for landlords. Recommended for most public libraries.?Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y.

easy to read, easy to understand: it gives you all you need.
I also bought the yellow cover book, "Landlording: A Handymanual for Scrupulous..." which is a lot of reading in small print pain to use
My only complaint was the time it took for the Guide to arrive. I usually get my Amazon products within a few days, and usually before the initial estimated delivery date. For some reason, this Guide took more than 10 days to get to me. This was during the rental application process, and I really could have used the Guide a little sooner. I almost bought it at my local Borders, but it was about $15 more expensive and Amazon had already shipped my order.
The state-by-state legal differences were particularly useful so I could craft my lease and properly follow the letter of the law. With just a generic how-to-landlord book, I'm not sure what I would have done. I probably wouldn't have been as aware as I should have about my local laws. And, bonus, the book is clear and easy to read.
