Understand your rights and responsibilities as a landlord before you lease a property

Did you know?

  • You can create a lease that makes the tenant responsible for all property maintenance?
  • In most states, there is a limit to how much of a security deposit you can require and a specific number of days you have to return the deposit at the end of the lease.
  • In states like Connecticut and Florida Landlords must pay the tenant interest earned while holding their security deposit.

Whether you have one or two basic questions about the lease you are already using or you’re starting from scratch, having access to a lawyer with experience in landlord and tenant law can help you develop the documents you need to run a profitable rental business. Educate yourself about core lease terms below, or get legal help now.

Given the investment you’ve made and the potential problems that can arise once you have a tenant occupying your rental unit, when you can have a lawyer review the lease and provide legal advice for the price of one business lunch, it’s a total no-brainer.
