I purchased this because I wanted to look at the actual legal forms. It advertises access to them online in the book if you buy the book. I went on the website and they wanted more money to access these forms. The book does have a lot of good information, but wanting more money to view the forms made me disappointed. This use to come with a CD with the forms on it to use, and then it was changed to the online format. Which they are not using to get more money from people. Only buy if you are interested in the information.

I have purchased four of the Nolo books and all of them are excellent. At first I thought that I had been misled because I didn't see some of the forms that I hoped for in the book. Then I found a URL listed in the book to download the forms from the Nolo web site. Outstanding - better than I hoped for!

This book offers detailed yet practical for many of the varied, and occasionally unpleasant, tasks that a landlord must deal with. It's well written and two of the authors are attorneys, so I trust the information is reliable. Nolo seems to stress their desire to help their customers. If you purchase the book and use the URL contained in the book, you'll find more than just forms. There are free, short videos on a variety of topics pertinent to the business of obtaining and renting properties.

I highly recommend this resource

I bought this book mostly because of the forms that came with it, but you cannot download them without signing up for a specific download service. Dont waste your time with this book.

The book has lots of helpfult tips and things to consider. I would have given the book 5 stars except the free forms that they advertise are not free. You have to purchase every form for a minimum of $10 each. I have contacted their help desk to inquire if I am missing something and where I can download the "free" forms. I have yet to hear from them. If they respond, I will update my posting.

Mildly Disappointed.

very nice book! my only complaint is that it treats all topics with equal weight - kind of like a school textbook. in the real world, different chapters mean more/less and could be emphasized more/less. but that's not a big deal - just need to read the chapters im interested in. its very comprehensive though and worth a full read.

This book has all the detail you need. Extensive charts on all the laws and regulations for all the states. Tons of do's/don'ts to get you started off right. Will definitely hold on to this book. Gives suggestions on how to handle difficult situations, but better yet, what to do to avoid them from the beginning. Great resource.

I had checked the previous edition out at our library and renewed it so many times that the librarian wouldn't let me check it out anymore, so I figured I should buy my own copy. This book, along with another similar one I've purchased from a different author, make for great resources on many important topics... more than I realized I needed to be aware of. I prefer to create my own forms in Word, so I have no need to download the various forms online (and read in other reviews that other customers experienced problems with the download; I did not attempt it).
