How Has MRLANDLORD.COM helped you?
The Questions and Answers Forum helped when I needed answers about a disputed security deposit. I received information and a lot of support (which I needed) from other landlords that I have never met. I have learned solutions for problems that I have not encountered and how to avoid them from knowledgeable landlords in different parts of the country. In addition, I've picked up lots of information (much of it free), including New Federal Laws (lead) information. Plus, there is the availability of information on tapes, books, and reports. I also got my current rental software from MRLANDORD.COM.
