Landlording is more popular than ever as low interest rates and stock market volatility inspire people to move money into real estate. While higher returns and stability are the attractions, a multitude of factors affect landlord success. Many of these factors may appear particularly daunting to nonprofessionals. Real estate veterans and authors Daniel Goodwin and Richard Rusdorf offer all the resources and information any landlord needs in a single book. The Landlord's Handbook: A Complete Guide to Managing Small Residential and Commercial Properties, 3rd edition, is an updated and expanded volume, featuring expert guidance on all aspects of the landlord business. The narrative, examples, and stories make up a valuable guidebook for landlords, property managers, real estate agents, appraisers, mortgage lenders, insurance agents, and accountants who want to:
• Find the best tenants. 
• Collect rent and effectively manage accounts. 
• Make sense of insurance and taxes. 
• Address environmental issues associated with properties. 
• Buy, sell, and remodel more profitably. All the details needed to master landlording are outlined in easy-to-follow steps, written in an intelligible, approachable style. The authors also include tips on trouble-free maintenance, as well as information on the latest tenants' rights issues concerning leases, riders, security deposits, evictions, and more.
