Happy New years from our family to yours. Bringing in the new year, marks the end of the holiday season… for now. The holidays have past but there is still time to prepare before tenants are rushing into your apartments. Are you ready for them to move-in? This is the time for new home owners to be crossing their Ts and dotting their Is.
Having the proper paperwork for tenants can be stressful and time consuming to gather. Lacking the proper leasing procedure can get you into unexpected trouble with the Fair Housing Act. When on-boarding new tenants, it is imperative you cover all your bases or you could suffer major loses, not only to your wallets but to your reputation as a landlord. Deciding who you rent to, should be an objective process that isn’t based on race, gender, religion, family status or any mental or physical impairments.
At ezlandlordforms.com, or eforms.com, they provide you with easily accessible forms, from rental agreements to eviction forms along with numerous other safety documents, that could be of use.
