A landlord tenant relationship starts with making the lease. The lease says that the tenant is using the land with the permission of the landlord. The lease is applicable for a prefixed time period after which the tenant has to return the use of the land to the landlord. In spite of the right of the land being the landlord's, the tenant can enjoy it for the lease period.
The lease, be it in written or verbal, launches the landlord tenant relationship. It is a dual agreement in which the tenant has to pay rent in return for the use of premises by the landlord.

am a new landlord and this was the perfect site for
me to join. My friend who only has 2 rental units referred
me to LandlordOnline. The ease of use was the selling point
