Landlord Tenant Survival E-book





There's a certain evolution in life that influences where and how we live; and whether or not we own or rent our living quarters or spaces where we conduct business. Once we leave our parents' (or in-laws`) homes, most of us start out as tenants living in property owned by someone else. We may rented dormitory rooms at college, sharing them with roommates. Or occupy "quarters" as members of various military services. Or move into a rented apartment, condo, house, or mobile home either alone or with others.

Possibly, the statistic that I'm most proud of is that, in more than four decades of being a landlord, I've only had to go to court 5 times to evict tenants. During all these years, I have been able to maintain cordial relations with my tenants during their tenancies, and after they moved on to other quarters. That speaks volumes about the cordiality of our relationships and how as tenants and landlords we treated each other.

Despite the fact that landlords have shared many common experiences with tenants, once a person actually becomes the owner of rental income property that is rented to others, there is often a palpable change in attitude toward both the property and the person who is paying to occupy, possess, and use it. Oddly enough, a corresponding change also takes place in the attitudes of those who continue to rent rather than to own their quarters.

This book will help you make the transition to being a landlord.
