What Landlords are saying about The LPAI'd like to thank the landlords below for their support, kind words and contributions to our site which are a help to all of us in the business of managing tenants.
If you'd like to submit your testimonial comments about the The Landlord Protection Agency, we'd appreciate hearing from you.

"If you are a landlord of any type of housing rental, you owe it to yourself to check out the LPA. They truly offer a wealth of value for no or minimal charge - forms, tips, helpful news updates, links to key resources, etc. In this day and age of shallow blogs, phishing sites, and mind numbing legalese, I find the LPA to be totally refreshing in its usefulness, candor, and affordability. I have been a member for years and continue to find value, even though we only have one rental."
- Laura R.
The Landlord Protection Agency provides a wealth of information and resources. The site has free rental forms, tips, advice, tenant screening, legal resources, information from other landlords and lots more. If landlords would go to sites like this, they would encounter fewer problems with their tenants.
Inexperienced and experienced landlords can get answers, gain knowledge and share concerns. I especially like the Free Landlord Service Page that offers eviction photos and a landlord test. I took the landlord test and thankfully passed it. As an experienced landlord and author of a landlord book, I find the site to be extremely helpful and would highly recommend it."
Thanks for the great service. With the services you have available and with the use of the forms on your web site, I was able to screen and find much higher quality tenants. Credit checks and background checks scare the bad tenants away, and somehow seem to attract the good ones (perhaps it's their confidence in knowing they'll get passed a screening....). The lease forms you have available are much more thorough than the standard lease forms available through the local legal supply.
Again, thanks. The small membership fee I paid has just earned itself back many times over.

I took the eight required courses to become a real estate broker in California several years ago. I forget lot of that. The LPA membership helps to keep you informed on age-old tenant problems along with new scams and laws. The input from experienced landlords and property managers in the Forum is a great method of learning the tricks that go on. The LPA has me better prepared for managing rentals than just school alone.
Just wanted to drop a note to say, I joined your agency a few months ago and I am very PLEASED...
Although I have been a landlord for 27 years and did belong to a Landlord agency in New York, I find you offer so much more.....
Also I had to call John Reno The Lawyer on your site after dealing with Landlord Tenant Lawyers and most of the time handling evictions myself, I found Mr. Reno and his office staff VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE and extremely nice. Hopefully I will not need his services, BUT IF I DO I WILL DEFINETELY USE HIM AS MY LAWYER..
Thank-You for having such a great agency and helping Landlords....
P.S. You can print this also: that I highly recommend Landlords use your Lease and other Forms............................
Hope you had a great July 4th! I sent you a reply message informing you about the outcome of my court case. I WON EVERY PENNY AND THEY PAID UP ALREADY!
Thank You so much for your advice and LPA. I think my membership renewal is coming up and this by far has been the best investment since 2006.
Thanks to you and theLPA my lease and paperwork made me the most prepared LL that my attorney ever represented. I also believe the judge was shocked at how well prepared my paperwork was. My attorney also stated this and said that more LL's need to be as prepared as I was and it made his job much easier than what he has experienced in the past. He stated that this was the best LL representation he has ever experienced because I was fully prepared. He also stated that he would be happy to serve me if I needed help in the future.
How can any landlord not perceive and appreciate this wonderful concept on protecting landlords from tenants who are versed in the art of using the system to obtain free rent. As a landlord you are prey to every single deadbeat to ever rent a property. My tenants have come to fear the leases and other helpful forms provided to me by The Landlord Protection Agency and have come to realize that I mean business. My previous tenants will come to know what I felt like when they stiffed me for many months of rent in arrears prior to their moving out. I am very grateful for this program that you folks have put together. Keep up the good work!!!!!!" - Walter W. Bell , LPA Member.

Thanks for offering such a useful collection of information to serve the rental community. My husband and I recently published "A Fool's Guide to Landlording" (AuthorHouse Publishers) and listed your site as a recommended source for further information. Here is what we said.
1. The Landlord Protection Agency (thelpa.com)
This Web site is best utilized if you become a member, which costs $70. Members get to enjoy many services, including:
a) Deadbeat database
b) Downloadable forms
c) Credit report
d) Available property lists
e) Questions and Answers
f) Much more….
However, there are many free services available to you on this Web site, even if you are not a member. We’d suggest you try some of the free services, which will help you decide if it is worth your becoming a member.

Your company is the best of the best. Congratulations on a job well done. :)
Have a good one
Ron M., Pensacola, FL
Thank you for your monthly newsletters, although I have found that I have not much time to actually read them past the very first months.
I am a smalltime landlord with 3 apts in one building. I can say the biggest help was all your legal documents which I have personalized and changed with each tenants' passing. You have taken the legality myth out of landlording. (also I have been able to keep a personal touch but yet with professionalism, I call the particularly specific clauses of the lease "my a--hole clauses". I say "These clauses are in here if you dont act as understood. Keep the place up and pay the rent on time. That's all I ask. The rest are clauses that are at my option to invoke." Most have gotten the message. I affectionately refer to these "asshole clauses" because they have kept my and my tenants out of trouble..)
For a "throw of the dice" internet signup, I have been more than pleased with the value of your service through the years.

"Can you afford not to join The Landlord Protection Agency?
I'm very thankful for all The LPA has done for us. At first we were intimidated by our tenants and the whole process of leasing and managing our rental property. Now we have 3 rentals with excellent tenants!" - Carol and Jim S., LPA Members since July 2003
Tony Gramm, Aurora, OH
The forms, tips, and advice allowed us to pick a fantastic renter, who became an owner :o)
One day we drove by our rental, and saw the renter outside, in the sun... mowing the huge lawn. (at leas a 1/4 acres worth). I thought to myself, "What renter does that?"... then I thought again how careful we were when we screened all the couples.... It was a definite "Thank LPA" moment.
Best wishes to you and your business. If we ever decide to become landlords again, we'll be sure to re-register.
Starlett McCarthy, OH
We were involved with a tenant that was a First Class Swindler that had an attorney that was an out and out Crook that was ripping us off like you wouldn't believe. I was about to jump off a bridge and my " Landlord husband " was on the verge of doing much worse. My girlfriend who is married to a Real Estate Broker told him and he told me to call the LPA.com.
My husband called and long story short end result is that tenant is history with a $7,000.00 judgment recorded against him and his wife (which we will probably never see) and his attorney is now on the verge of being disbarred. Again, Thank You LPA.
Thanks again for the LPA. You and the folks here continue to provide a phenomenal service to landlords everywhere. I don't know where I'd be without your advice and forms.
Thanks! I'm so glad you've created the LPA!
I just used the LPA Lease for the first time! (- I slept well that night for the first time in a long time.)
I still have to take care of problems with horrible tenants who came with properties (I'd never take them as my tenants!), but I'm glad you have such effective forms already. I used to spend so much time trying to create effective letters and notices. Now when I want to give some notice, I'll just use LPA forms.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know I loved the site & will definitely continue to pass it on to anyone interested in becoming a landlord.
Dusty Osgood, Wapella, IL
This is exactly the addendum that I've been looking for ........ covers my owner-occupied duplex, as well as my other rental! I could not have found a better document ANYWHERE, and have been trying to find one, or create my own, for a while now (ever since we had renters with kids). Thanks again for ALL the valuable services and info you provide! You help take a lot of the headaches out of the Landlord game, by helping us to be prepared.
Susan B. Stockman, NY
Thank you for your quick response. You are a life saver; I’m meeting with new tenants tomorrow and needed your invaluable forms.
It is truly admirable how well you represent your company, keep up the good work.
Sincerely, Teresa Stein
Any landlord who is NOT a member of humble John’s LPA is paying in ways he will never realize. The term GROSS NEGLIGENCE comes to mind!
I have been a landlord in Germany where tenant’s rights are worse than in Santa Monica CA or NYC. I also know that foresight is better than hindsight and that lawyers are usually only useful to clean up the mess the Landlord often created himself through negligence.
My trailer park is still a mess, but we are improving and have better enforcement. My duplex in Nashville started off right thanks to you.
Sign me up for another two years. Just the deadbeat database and the threat of the ability to report to credit agencies is worth the membership fee.

I had my first eviction about two years ago . The judge was laughing when the tenant showed up with an attorney and she threw the book at him , she especially liked the part 2 clause reading "added rent." It was not a fun experience but somehow your lease made it a positive experience.
