    This is a niche where people are DESPERATE for answers.

    I agree that this may be a good niche to write articles for.

    You will need to be very careful writing in this niche as each state/province will have there own regulations and policies to deal with all of those suggestions that are listed in this list. Plus keeping up with the updates also.

    Both the landlord and tenant need to understand them properly.

    We have been managing an apartment buildings for a number of years and it is a learning experience in itself. Dealing with many different cultures, you learn a lot.

    Take a look at About.com they have articles there to look at.

    You will find some help there.

      Thanks for throwing that in there Mike. The "Slumloard" thing just sounded cool. But your post will point anyone interested in the right direction. Don't think this is one sided... I've seen the aftermath of the other side in a few REOs in my day. Disgusting!

      Looks like an interesting "desperate buyers' " niche?

      My potential reservation is that all these things vary hugely between different countries (and I think some of them vary pretty significantly, in the US, even just between different states??), so one would have to work out a way to avoid producing something effectively "geo-targeted", i.e. with a relatively small market in terms of customer-location??

        That is a premium way of doing it. Just to put another way, a guide that explains what you just said and a directory of where they can find the laws.

      I agree man. About five to ten years ago (not sure) I was in this boat, asking these same questions. I would've paid 17 to 27 without thinking to get fast answers.

    Perhaps some "Tenants Rights in (State)" pages with google adwords on them. Or a paid directory of attorneys that specialize in such matters.

      The fact that the guides would have to be specific to particular locales is a limiting factor but doesn't have to be a deal breaker. You could probably make a fair amount doing a guide like this to NYC alone...

      Or consider limiting the project to just a handful of high-population cities. Since the answers to a lot of these questions are likely to be similar, customizing them for the different locations wouldn't mean writing each one from scratch.

    This is one of those niche topics that is primarily legal in nature. As such,
    an attorney is a very good idea to have on hand.

    As Alexa mentioned, different countries (and most every state in the U.S.),
    have their own rules and laws. I am certain that this also applies with
    tenant/landlord agreements.

    Some of the keywords are somewhat generic and can probably be answered
    fairly easily, such as "Can my landlord charge me a late fee?".
    I have never seen a lease agreement that did not include a "Late Payment"
    clause in the contract. The landord can waive this provision, but most all
    contracts provide for paying extra if the payment is late. This seems almost
    universal, but I can only speak about states in the U.S.

    I used to have an offline business teaching gymnastics to children. One day
    my landlord handed me a letter stating that I was to pay an additional amount
    in rent - beginning 5 months previous to his giving me the notice. I had 14 days
    to pay an additional $3,400 (he really raised my rent!). This letter also stated that
    he would confiscate all my equipment and lock the doors to the building, and even though
    I did not have access, I would still be charged the usual rent. My equipment, which was
    probably worth $150,000 was to be sold at auction after the 14 days if I had not
    paid the extra money.

    Since I was working with a lot of families, several of the children had attorneys as
    parents. I showed the letter to one of them who laughed. Free of charge, this attorney
    wrote a response letter that had my landlord apologizing to me. I could have sued him.

    Sorry to digress. I too have had experience with landlords. My point is that I had an
    attorney help me out. I guess if I were to do this, I would make certain that I had an
    airtight disclaimer, as well as someone who knows the law give my facts (and my
    disclaimer) a quick read through.

    Nice idea, and I am sure that a lot of people could use some solid help. The only other
    problem that I can see is that most people who run into trouble cannot just pick up
    information from the internet and take it to their landlord and say "See, you can't do this".
    Most reputable landlords have attorneys that know what can and can't be done.
    In the end, the poor tenant really needs to have legal action requiring an attorney's
    intervention.

    Having said all of that, if you are a lawyer, or have access to one, then this might be
    something that would be a worthwhile pursuit. I don't think it would be a good idea
    for someone who does not know the law. Of course, nothing has stopped gajillions
    of people from promoting weight loss programs and products, or heartburn, or acne,
    and other medical information. So, well, maybe I should just delete this post?
