A multi-part discussion about the basics of the landlord resident relationship, presented in separate stand-alone sessions, using plain “non-legalese” language and real-life examples.

2.UNDERSTANDING THE RULES OF THE GAME: THE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE PARTIES TO THE LEASE
In this session, we will explore the most important aspects of the contract between the resident and the owner, including a plain language explanation of those terms. There is a lot more to the lease than just how much rent is to be paid. Understanding the rights and responsibilities of the parties will help keep you sane, because you will be able to explain the terms to your residents in a commonsense way.
