Recommended Tenant/Landlord Education?

6 Replies

Over the next twelve months I would like to purchase a multifamily rental unit, owner occupied, using an FHA loan. I want to learn all I can about lease agreements, tenant screening, potentially forming an LLC, etc. to ensure I am protected and can be a top-notch landlord, without missing any important aspects.

Whether it's a book to read, a forum to peruse, or a podcast/audiobook to listen to, any advice or recommendations would be wonderful. Thanks!

listen to the podcasts here on BP and use the "Learn" section at the top of the page. Learn the specific landlord/tenant laws for your state and be sure that anytime you ask questions here in the forums you specify the city/county and state where you are investing. Best of luck @Dillon Loomis

Don Beck is a landlord in PA that has educational materials. An attorney in the Pittsburgh area named Brad Dornish has some educational home study materials for sale at his website. Neither of those will require you to spend exorbitant amounts. 

@RobBeland @SteveBabiak Thank you for the input, I appreciate it. I will definitely look into those things!
