Turn your home into a rental property by following the steps in this Letsfixit guide. Perhaps you tried to sell it and couldn’t, or maybe you may be returning to the home in a year or two. In any event, you have chosen to rent it out, but where do you begin? These steps will walk you through the process of turning your home into a rental property.
Meet with a real estate attorney. Not all attorneys are well-versed in real estate laws, particularly landlord/tenant laws. A specialist can advise you of which steps, if any, you'll need to take within your county to abide by the laws. The attorney can also help you by drafting up a rental application and rental agreement.
Advertise. Use newspaper ads, a sign in the front yard, the Internet and/or a Realtor.
