Publisher's Summary

Here is Landlording 101 for new rental-property owners who are first-time landlords as a result of an inheritance, a divorce, a move to a new house, buying a duplex and renting out the extra unit, a purchase for a family member (an elderly parent or college-student child), or buying a rental property as an investment.

Many listeners who could use this audiobook are not only first-timers but accidental landlords who took on the task because they inherited a property or couldn't sell their house at a decent price and so are renting it out. This book is for the millions of people who rent out single-family homes and condos (not multi-unit apartment buildings) while typically balancing a day job with landlording responsibilities. The intended audience is novice landlords who need basic business and legal advice on renting out and managing rental properties - a different audience from landlords who consider themselves professional real-estate investors.

    "Very informative a categorical approach"

    I learned what I wanted to learn. I had no previous knowledge. Covers many different aspects of being a landlord. Narration is good.

    Story
    "Excellent advisor for new or potential landlords"

    Written by attorneys with an aim to prepare those who have a property that they are wishing to rent out, as well as persons looking to purchase an income generating property.
    There are extensive considerations in shopping for an investment property, and many tips and eye-opening factors to note, which are finely detailed here.
    If the property is already owned, there are specific legal and tax issues to be aware of, and all of the factors to consider in choosing tenants apply regardless of whether landlord is on-site or not.
    Use of this text and the downloadable PDFs should prepare the potential landlord to make basic decisions and know whom to contact for specific assistance.
    Narrator Jack presents the material with clear voice and pronunciation, making the first reading of the material easy to assimilate.
