Renters have many legal rights--

learn yours and how to protect them

The only book of its kind, Every Tenant's Legal Guide gives you the legal and practical information you need (plus dozens of sample letters and forms) to find a great rental and landlord.

Learn your rights regarding pets, guests, deposits, and privacy, and find out how to:

- notify your landlord about needed repairs and use rent withholding or repair-and-deduct if you have to

- avoid disputes with roommates over rent, deposits, guests, and noise

- fight illegal discrimination, retaliation, or sexual harassment

- navigate state and local rent control laws

- deal with hazards like lead paint, mold, and bed bugs

- break a lease with minimum liability, and

- get your security deposit returned on time.

The 11th edition of Every Tenant's Legal Guide includes charts detailing every state's landlord-tenant laws. This edition also includes information on how to deal with large, impersonal corporate landlords and the competitive rental markets found in nearly every state.
