Flip's Guide for Landlords


Welcome to Flip! We’ve put together a comprehensive, state-by-state guide that covers each step in the rental process—specifically tailored to answer any questions you might have as a landlord. Wondering how much you can ask a tenant to put down as a security deposit? Or what questions you should avoid asking during the tenant screening process? You’ve come to the right place.

How to navigate this guide

When it comes to your responsibilities as a landlord, a lot depends on where you live. We built our guide to reflect that. Every topic or question has a general landing page that explains the concept and includes an overview of any applicable laws across various states. Then, you can choose your state from the dropdown menu at the top of the page to learn more.

Getting started

This guide breaks down every part of the rental cycle, from applications to evictions—but below are a few of our most popular topics to get you going.
