U.S. Legal Forms, Inc., a leading online provider of state-specific legal forms, announced today significant improvements to product landing pages in its Landlord Tenant category. The broader Landlord Tenant landing page and three pages for more specific products including Residential Leases, Commercial Leases and Lease-Purchase Agreements are included in the overhaul.
This is the primary landing page for the company’s Landlord Tenant forms and packages, a leading seller throughout the company’s history. New tabs labeled Landlord, Tenant, and FAQ have been added, containing detailed information. Clicking the Landlord tab opens a wide-ranging essay entitled, How Can You Be Most Successful as a Landlord?
"Rental property management deals with laws covering everything from initial tenant screening and tenant application, creating the lease or rental agreement, to eviction for failure to pay rent. Successful landlords know what the legal responsibilities of the landlord are, how to follow proper procedures, and use the correct landlord tools to do so."
The essay goes on to highlight various issues that may be encountered by landlords in the course of a tenancy, including sections on screening, the lease agreement, conduct during the lease, and when the lease ends either by expiration or termination with or without cause.
The Tenant tab opens to detailed strategies on issues near to tenants hearts: getting out of a lease early, and recovering a security deposit. The FAQ tab identifies issues raised by the seven common questions of landlords and tenants, including (1) what to do when rent is late, (2) notice requirements when evicting a tenant, (3) whether interest is required on a security deposit, (4) reasons a landlord can and cannot refuse to lease a dwelling, (5) general rights and responsibilities of landlords for managing the property, (6) filing a complaint for forcible entry to evict a tenant, and (7) possibilities for defending against an eviction action.
The company’s landing page for Lease Purchase Agreements features a new Lease Purchase FAQ explaining what the agreement entails, why it is used, and the advantages and disadvantages of using a Lease Purchase Agreement to lease and potentially purchase property.
New material appearing on the Residential Lease page includes an essay for Landlords and Tenants on What You Need to Have in Every Residential Lease Agreement. This overview highlights key lease terms, the omission of which can lead to serious consequences. A new FAQ section gives detailed information on questions involving month-to-month leases, lease applications, rent increases, and holding over after the lease expiration, and more.
The company has posted a new article on Commercial Leases in three parts: Differences Between Commercial and Residential Leases, Types of Commercial Leases, and Provisions Needed in a Commercial Lease. A new FAQ section details the Triple Net Lease, required signatures, assignment, early termination, and load factor for common areas.
