I suspect that more states will be adopting these RIGHT to RENT laws over the next few years.  HOA governing documents AND subsequent board and membership actions to curtain units being rented is VERY short lived and SELF destructive.   New California "RIGHT TO RENT" law at common interest develo...
I don't think the Dems are getting it YET * DNC DWS when interviewed could not acknowledge the 8 DECADES that the Dems have held this seat.  GOP rep elected in Nevada also.  Let's hope this is a portend for 2012 New York's 9th Congressional District, first Republican elected in 91 years. What's g...

I STOPPED the END OF THE MONTH rush by ending my FIXED TERM leases at NOON on the 3rd Friday of the month.  It allows residents to hire professional movers, cleaners to prep for their move out AND it allows me to have a week to 10 days to get the unit ready for residents moving in on the 1st.  I ...
State and LOCAL laws govern how a security deposit can be handled.  If kept with the property manager/broker, state licensing laws would govern; however, state and local landlord-tenant laws govern if the deposit is kept in a separate or interest bearing account AND if the tenant must be NOTIFIED...
