MyVirtualCPA :

Thank you for your question, and thanks for using JustAnswer.com

MyVirtualCPA :

The best sites to list your town home for rent are absolutely free.

MyVirtualCPA :

Craigslist is a really good option. It's free and local, although you would be well advised to only meet people that contact you through Craigslist in a public place first, before being alone with them in your vacant townhome.

MyVirtualCPA :

Zillow.com and Trulia.com are two other sites where you can go in, make an account, and rent out your home. This will list your rental to the public, and also realtors who may refer their clients your way.

MyVirtualCPA :

If you are looking for a home, these three sites are your best bet as well.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX please let me know the various paperwork I need to finish with a tenant to make a solid agreement with the tenant so he does not cause issues with payments etc. thanks,

Thanks for your follow up. You need an application that lists his current address, his employer's name and address, and at least two references with their entire name, address, and phone number. You need a copy of their driver's license and social security card. You must get the social security number, because if they do not pay, you can use that with a collection agency and they can have a better chance of getting you your money.

Then, you need a lease (you can find a template online I'm sure) that specifies your monthly rental, and the various fees you will charge for being late, breaking the lease, etc.

Please let me know if you need anything additional. If not, please rate this response so that I may receive credit for further assistance. Thanks.
