One of the questions I kept hearing was, "How did the Landlord Protection Agency get started?"
During an eviction in the early 1990's, a judge accusingly asked me "Where'd you get this lease?"
I was worried because he was yelling at everyone that day.
So, I meekly said, "I made that lease."
He said, "This is the best lease I've seen. You oughta market this thing to landlords."
I left the courtroom that day about 20 years ago, with a bounce in my step! Jeanne then bugged me for a few years to make a website to share our forms with other landlords, but I must confess, I didn't yet know what a website was!
We've grown a lot since then, now offering landlords a complete toolbox of awesome Landlord Forms, low priced instant online credit checks, Credit Bureau Reporting and much more.
I feel it's my revenge against all those bad tenants that helped educate me!
