No, a former landlord can't charge the tenants to change the locks on the property. All sorts of situations can happen between landlords and tenants when it comes to changing locks. Whether landlords change the locks or tenant changes them, both need to know what otherone can and cannot do. So all should know evrything before going to buy a property. I have some idea regarding Las Vegas Eviction Services of RocketEviction, which offers quick, efficient Nevada eviction services for apartment complex owners, high-rise condominium owners and other multi-family rentals in Clark County, Nevada.

Can the landlord require tenants to paint for next tenants?

The careful answer is (as usual), "it depends". As you phrase it, the answer is "no", the landlord is responsible for maintenance such as painting. The landlord cannot charge for (or expect the tenant to do) repairs for normal wear and tear. So, for example, if you lived there 5 years and there are dirty spots or a few scuffs from a bicycle wheel, that is likely wear and tear. If you had a bird that pooped all over the floor and the walls, that is unreasonable damage. So, if the landlord is giving you the chance to paint over something bad you did, then you should take the opportunity to make things right. If most people leave the property in as good condition as you are leaving it, then the landlord is not making a fair request.

How do you become a landlord?

Anytime you rent a home that you own to someone else you are that person's landlord. The person you are renting to is known as your tenant. There may be local or state requirements, such as licensing, etc. You can list your property on many online or printed sites. You may want to consider accepting Section 8 vouchers (Housing Choice Voucher Program) as you are likely to have better tenants, a paradox. HCVP tenants are screened and are not allowed into the program if they have a history of violent crimes or are registered sex offenders. Always have a system by which you can check your potential tenants' background. You can hire a service for this for a charge of about $30 per potential tenant, something you can charge back to the applicant as an application fee. If you do accept HCVP vouchers you can list your property with the Housing Authority in your area, increasing your chance of keeping your place occupied by good tenants.

Finding out maximun landlord can charge rent?

Check your local tenant/landlord laws. Generally, they can charge what they want--it is a matter of what the market will bear. They own the property and it is their choice, with some guidelines about exclusions, as to who they will rent to and what the terms of the lease are.
