• drawing up a lease

• maintaining the property and avoiding damage

• establishing policies for pets, furnishings, security, and utilities

• advertising available space

• working with property managers

• dealing with problem tenants and diputes

• and much more

Packed with forms for leases, letters, and other legal documents, The Successful Landlord gives readers the knowledge and tools to become successful, high-income landlords."
