Benefits of Using Lease, Addendum, and Disclosure Forms from LPA

Judges and attorneys highly recommend these forms and advise landlords to take advantage of them. What benefits does a landlord receive with these documents?

  • They make your tenantís obligations clear, allowing good tenants to do their due diligence.
  • A clear lease can save you thousands of dollars in legal fees since it spells out exactly what is required.
  • Protect your property by reducing your exposure to bad tenants and evictions. Bad tenants donít like strong leases.
  • Use tested and proven addendums to your lease that have protected landlords already. The worst time to find out that you donít have something important included in your lease is in the moment.
  • The Specific Lease Index allows you to verify your stateís requirements and any state-imposed limitations affecting your lease rental agreement. State requirements are listed with corresponding LPA lease clause numbers.
  • Utilize the Specific Notice Period Chart for the number of days a tenant has to cure default with pay rent or quit notice.

The forms we offer here at LPA are downloadable, editable to match your needs, and good for unlimited use.
