For a lot of you this might be silly but for first-time landlords I was just curious how you go about creating or developing a lease for your first rental unit, single unit for the first time specifically in the state of California?

Where does one go to to do such a thing that will have the current and binding laws for the state of California if that makes sense?

How and where do you insert clauses for example if the tenant violates any HOA ordinance they're responsible for the fine things of that nature? Thank you so much for any detailed information that would be helpful

Check out EZLandlordforms. You can create a CA-specific lease and include a custom provision in the "Rules" step of the set up. You can also choose from a list of Rules to add to your lease.  They offer some other useful forms for free but the state-specific lease will cost about $30.

Is it a legitimate site, credible?

Have you use them and if so what state are you in and how long have you used it?

Or let me guess you work for them

EZLandlordforms is legitimate and is often recommended by other landlords in other forums as well. There are other services such as NoloAAOA and Law Depot.

I recommended EZLandlordforms because you asked for state-specific forms and I believe they have the best state-specific forms. I don't work for them. See what others say about forms services in other forums and make a decision you are comfortable with.

Thanks for the response. When I looked up easy landlord on the internet it's based out of New Jersey and I'm in California and it actually had a lot of bad customer reviews. So like any site it makes you lierry when someone thanks they're being scammed according to reviews.

The best thing to do is have a lawyer do it. You will either pay him now to avoid problems, or later to fix them.

Yes. Unless you REALLY know the laws AND have a good template to go on, it will be more than worth the money to have an attorney do it. Things going wrong one time will cost much more than an attorney.
