The South Dakota Consumer Handbook
This handbook contains useful information for landlords, tenants and consumers to access many subjects and information regarding the landlord-tenant relationship. This information is kept in well-organized, easy-to-read paragraphs that make the details clear. Reading this will leave consumers with a better understanding of the relationship and how the processes and disputes can work between both the landlord and tenant parties.
Using this handbook not only gives landlords and tenants some insight into the rules and regulations in South Dakota but it can also be used as a learning tool before jumping into either role. The more information an individual has before becoming a tenant or landlord, the better.
Having this information available is great for any consumer to have around because it has important information with useful knowledge. The informational documents make it easy to get answers in a hurry, which is especially helpful in any dispute.
Information from the experts that have been landlords themselves and have experience with property management can be found in the Articles & State Laws resources. The experts at EZ Landlord Forms have the information and the warnings that are not part of specific laws.
Rely On HUD
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a great source for information. Part of having all of the information needed to be an effective landlord is not just understanding the laws and regulations but having read them. Landlords can become familiar with the rules that are specific to South Dakota by visiting:
