Rate this:
As the cost of real estate rises across Canada, more and more homeowners are looking to become landlords. "Secondary suites" are becoming an increasingly common way for homeowners to subsidize their mortgages and supplement their incomes. This book is unique in that it places emphasis on the rental of secondary suites, and how to avoid a potentially negative landlord-tenant relationship by steering clear of "bad tenants." Drouillard tells the reader how to determine what constitutes an "acceptable risk," and provides insight into how to market rental space in order to attract good tenants. Sample rental ads will teach the reader how to make the most of short newspaper classified ads, as well as how to write longer online ads. Practical advice from this experienced realtor and property manager will make the process of finding and securing a tenant feel much less daunting. Note: This book also includes a CD-ROM for use on a Windows-based PC.

Very good reference book although it skirts around ethnic problems, I suppose in an effort to be politically correct. They didn't mention that people from other countries have very different customs, like the Europeans show without a tub or enclosure right over the sink/ toilet etc ie the whole bathroom is their shower enclosure. Japanese douche themselves with water outside the tub prior to entering the tub. Landlords may find their bathroom floors and ceilings from units below theirs to be soaking wet. And others use cardamom and other very strongly scented spices that permeates the walls and can almost never be removed! No mention of how to evict tenants for excessive wrecklessness and abuse to property, or breaking lease conditions like smoking, owning pets etc if these conditions are prohibited in their lease. Or what to do if the cost of clean up & repairs are beyond the damage deposit, or how to deal with pot and crack users. Can I evict someone for bringing in roaches and bedbugs??
