What do you do when you find that not only are you a homeowner, but a landlord as well? If you're trying to off-set a hefty mortgage by renting out a portion of your home, or you'd like to diversify your investment portfolio using the place where you reside, The CIG to Being a Smart Landlord will tell you how to:
-- Determine if your property will be a moneymaker or a sink hole.
-- Advertise, screen tenants, or evict them if they turn out to be problem renters.
-- Create a lease that protects you and your tenants, with standard samples to refer to throughout.
-- Maintain your property.
-- Work with Housing Code officials, Fire inspectors, police, and other authorities.
