I came across this great read on PropertyVista.com discussing conflicts between tenants and resolutions to those issues. It also discusses the property manger’s role, which was a very interesting perspective.

Great advice on leases clauses. I would add three points:
Lease should contain written, signed move-in condition of the home.
Update and edit your lease constantly. Steal every good idea from articles, landlords, other leases, court cases. Customize to match your judge’s thinking and local laws.
Time spent orienting/training the new tenant makes managing easier and more profitable. We do a “Lease Ceremony” – tell new tenant to allow an hour and get a sitter for the kids. We review the lease highlights, they initial each critical clause, answer their questions, do a safety walk (breakers, shut offs, filters), handle monies, give keys, and take their picture while happy in a clean home.
