30 Day Notice to Landlords

Landlord Inspection Checklist
Of course, every rental inspection will vary depending on who the landlord is, however, there are general items & issues a landlord should be aware of when conducting an inspection:
- Safety items (smoke detector batteries, fire extinguishers)
- Furnace filters
- Signs of bugs/pests
- Water leaks & damages
- Any issues with the window/door seals
- Condition of any in-unit appliances (oven, microwave, laundry, dishwasher)
- Overall cleanliness/condition of property
Check out our post for an overview of how to conduct an inspection and what to look for!

How to Write a Lease Addendum
Lease addendums can be useful for providing additional policies or regulations to your core lease document. For example, some addendums can include information about pet policies, noise complaints, and maintenance upkeep.
You can also use lease addendums to modify your initial lease agreement with a tenant—for example, if you need to set up a rent deferral plan—and have both parties agree to the new terms.
How to Write a Lease Termination Letter
What’s the difference between a lease termination letter and an eviction notice?
A landlord will supply an eviction notice when they wish to force a tenant to vacate for breaking lease terms. Lease termination letters are supplied by tenants, and they are often used when both the tenant and landlord have followed the terms of the lease.
How to Write an Eviction Notice
There are several reasons why you might need to begin writing an eviction notice and doing so properly is extremely important. This article will cover how to write an eviction letter, as well as provide a downloadable template you can use for your own eviction notice.

Why You Should Prequalify Tenants
When it comes to filling your units, you want tenants who meet your minimum requirements and have a consistent way of paying rent. Typically, determining if a renter is right for your unit can involve emailing or calling back and forth, touring the rental, verifying documents, sifting through applications, and ensuring compliance with the Fair Housing Act.
However, prequalifying tenants can help you immediately filter out any renters who don’t meet your minimum requirements—before you even have to show your unit.
