Abstract:
"This guidebook contains legal and practical information for tenants, and contains dozens of sample letters and forms. Topics discussed include: getting landlords to make repairs by using rent withholding or repair-and-deduct; avoiding disputes with roommates over rent, deposits, guests, and noise; fighting illegal discrimination, retaliation, or sexual harassment; dealing with hazards like lead paint, mold, or bedbugs; breaking a lease with minimum liability; and getting a security deposit returned on time. This book includes the latest state-by-state laws including security deposit rules and termination notice requirements. This book also includes expanded sections on tenant rights regarding sublets (including through Airbnb-type services), using marijuana in the rental, and using social media to find rentals"-- Provided by publisher.
