I am looking at purchasing my first house here within the next 6-10 months. This is going to be a starter home and my plan is to really live there for only a couple years. After that, I want to rent it out. My question is that for those of you who rent out properties are the following. What legal documents do you use, and where do you get them? Lawyer, legalzoom? If something breaks, do you end up fixing it, or do you hire it out? When you first started, what would you do differently now then you did when you started? How hard is it to find tenants for your properties? Also, for what its worth, I live in Kansas City.
