The Landlord’s Guide to Minnesota Law addresses every landlord-tenant legal issue that is likely to arise over the course of a lease. From how to find a tenant to what to do once they leave, it is a practical and thorough legal analysis of what Minnesota landlords need to know about complying with the relevant federal, state and local laws.
At the end of each chapter you’ll find “Tips from a Tenant Attorney.” These tips offer more creative advice on how landlords can solve difficult legal situations or prevent them from ever occurring. Also included is our exclusive line-by-line analysis of the Minnesota State Bar Association’s Model Residential Lease. Instead of guessing what your lease terms mean, this guide tells you why each term exists and how it applies to your situation.
This book was written by practicing attorneys in Minnesota who work exclusively in landlord-tenant law. There are dozens of legal guides available online for landlords, but none of them focus on Minnesota statutes and regulations, and when it comes to landlord-tenant legal issues, state law is key.
Both authors are currently practicing attorneys with over 25 years of experience in tenant landlord law, advising over 39,000 renters on HOME Line’s tenant hotline. They also train a wide variety of audiences in tenant landlord law, including over 100 trainings to landlord groups throughout Minnesota.

Here’s what people have to say about The Landlord’s Guide to Minnesota Law:
“The Landlord’s Guide to Minnesota Law provides a clear, concise description of landlord/tenant law in Minnesota. I wish I had this resource 16 years ago when I started working with rental housing. This book is full of practical insight and helpful advice that speaks to many common questions that landlords ask.”
-Sue Speakman-Gomez, President, HousingLink
“This is an excellent book, really one of a kind. As a former landlord, I know how complicated it can be to be a landlord. Rental properties really are a regulated industry, and landlords need to know more than just how to fix things. As an attorney, I also know how important it is to be able to see matters from various perspectives. There are few attorneys who specialize in landlord and tenant law in Minnesota. The authors of this book are experts in landlord and tenant law in Minnesota. This is a great resource for landlords and tenants, and the attorneys who represent them. I highly recommend it.”
-Lawrence McDonough, Director of Pro Bon Litigation at Dorsey & Whitney, LLP and former landlord
