"This superb book is written primarily for residential tenants, but landlords should read it, too... On my scale of 1 to 10, this outstanding book rates an off-the-chart 12." Robert Bruss, nationally syndicated columnist

"A perfect fit for young adults about to commit to a financial obligation that could cost them $12,000 to $24,000 per year..." Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine

"Don't let any landlord violate your rights. If you are having a problem, do the research. Get a copy of a renter's law book, such as the Nolo's Every Tenant's Legal Guide..." Los Angeles Times

"Virtually every book from Nolo can be highly recommended without reservations. This book is no exception." Chicago Tribune

"Portman and Stewart present readers with the eighth edition of their comprehensive overview of the tenant's legal rights and responsibilities. The authors have organized the main body of their text in twenty chapters devoted to finding a place to rent, leases and rental agreements, basic rent rules, security deposits, discrimination, inspection of the rental unit and moving in, roommates, guests, and Airbnb, major repairs and maintenance, minor repairs and maintenance, making improvements and alterations, your right to privacy, injuries on the premises, environmental hazards, and a wide variety of other related subjects. Janet Portman is a practicing attorney specializing in landlord-tenant law. Marcia Stewart is a real estate and consumer issue expert and author." Eithne O'Leyne, Editor Ringgold, Inc. ProtoView
