Education and news for smart DIY landlords!
Many landlords can handle tenant issues by themselves without legal help. However, you may come across a situation where you need expert advice. This is especially applicable to tenant evictions or property damages. You as a landlord can also be sued by a certain tenant for illegal discrimination or injury if they suspect that you failed to meet your obligations.
If you are a new landlord, consulting with a credible and experienced attorney for certain concerns can help you avoid legal liability. The right attorney will also help you be more aware of your duties to your tenants and avoid future disputes.

3. What are prepaid legal service plans?
