Minnesota Landlords and Leases

Don’t surf the internet to get your lease if you are a Minnesota landlord.  There are a number of specific statutes in Minnesota which require certain language within your lease.   Be safe, call a lawyer and get the right form.  It is cheaper to do that on the front end then pay for a lawyer when fighting over your lease terms on the back end.

Beware: Conversion Fee for Homeowners

If you are contemplating moving out and converting your home into rental property in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, you will want to check with your local city or municipality to see if you need to get a license and if you need to apply to convert your home for that use.  Some cities will charge a “conversion fee” to change the use of your property to a rental.
