A Guide to Landlords' Rights: Fifth Edition

This fifth edition of A Guide to Landlords’ Rights includes three new chapters: “Rights of Persons with Disabilities,” “Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers,” and “The Buffalo Rental Registry.” Many revisions have been incorporated throughout the Guide, and a chapter rewrite of “Recovering Money from a Tenant” has clarified the small claims process for landlords. The Guide also offers a resource list with updated phone numbers and contacts and a revised inspection checklist, application, and lease. D.F. Williamson has provided updated sample eviction and execution forms.

Other expanded topics include DSS Security Agreements, domestic violence victim protections, smoke alarm requirements, occupancy standards, and lead abatement. This book also contains ample information on selecting good tenants, the rental decision, safety and crime prevention, leases, security deposits, tenant responsibilities, keeping good tenants, and what to do when a tenancy doesn’t work.
