Using legally sound lease agreements is a great way to protect your real estate investments. LegalShield provides a suite of affordable services for landlords seeking legal advice to help navigate landlord-tenant laws.
Seventy-four point four percent (74.4%) of rental properties are owned by individual investors. Whether you have one property or have built a small real estate empire, it’s important to protect your investments by leasing them to tenants using legally sound written lease agreements.
Landlord-tenant law is different in every state. As such, it’s important that your lease agreements follow the laws and regulations in the local area. Starting with an online template may save money in the short term, but it leaves you open to liability or unenforceable clauses. The best way to make sure you have the necessary legal protection is to work with a law firm that understands the landlord-tenant laws in your state.
As a LegalShield member, you’ll not only have access to real estate lawyer-drafted templates, you get an unlimited amount of phone consultation with a local lawyer.
While lease agreements need to follow local law, there are six key terms or lease provisions that should be included in any rental agreement that can help avoid landlord/tenant disputes.
For a small monthly fee, LegalShield lawyers in your state are available to review your lease agreement and provide feedback.
Unfortunately, even tenants who have signed airtight lease agreements could damage property or fail to pay rent from time to time. LegalShield is here to help you deal with tenant matters. Here are some important steps to take when dealing with troublesome renters.

If you’re unsure about how to handle a tenant issue, join LegalShield and our lawyers can guide you. In more serious situations, your lawyer can get involved directly to negotiate a positive resolution.
