EZ Landlord Forms has free, downloadable forms such as lease agreements, rental applications and a personal financial statement which is used to collect financial information on prospective tenants. Additionally, the site offers informational pamphlets to provide to a new tenant, such as an EPA Lead Paint pamphlet and Lead-based Paint Disclosure, as well as an Environmental Protection Agency Mold Guide.
The Landlord Protection Agency offers free rental binder agreements, which are meant to act as a precontract, documenting an offer has been made with a deposit. The site also offers tools such as a rental flow chart, which outlines the entire process a landlord should follow from first making contact with a prospective tenant through signing a lease agreement. Addendum forms are available, including painting instructions, a waterbed addendum, fire safety instructions and guidelines on bed bug control and prevention.
Rocket Lawyer offers the essential documents and forms for landlords, as well as answers to common questions and articles with relevant information. The free forms on the site are created based on the state where the rental property sits, and legal assistance is available for a fee.Learn more about Real Estate
