Renter? Head off problems with roommates and landlords!

Is your roommate making it next to impossible to pay the rent on time each month? Or is your landlord forgetting about the clogged drain he said he'd repair weeks ago? Then it's time to assert your rights!

Aimed at everyone from the new renter on the block to more seasoned tenants who just want to know the basics, this primer is packed with the critical legal and practical information that every renter needs, written in plain English.

Renters' Rights covers important concerns like:
  • leases and rental agreements
  • discrimination
  • rent
  • security deposits
  • privacy
  • roommates
  • repairs and maintenance
Co-authored by two experts in tenants' rights, this book is as indispensable as a friend with a pickup truck and a free weekend. This edition is completely updated to reflect changes to your state's laws, including new information on what to do if your rental goes into foreclosure and increased legal protections for domestic violence victims. This book contains many 50-state charts such as security deposit limits and state laws in domestic violence situations, that give tenants the exact information they need.
