EZ Landlord Forms — this site’s business model is to offer you a free lease agreement that you can fill in via a step-by-step tool (document builder), but it then tries to sell you a more complete, state-specific version for a $30 one-time payment or a $12 monthly subscription. The fill-in builder is well detailed and will give you a good idea of some of those clauses you need in your lease (e.g., for properties built before 1978, lead paint forms are required, and the tool makes sure to ask you). preview

You will be required to create an account (so they can send you lots of follow-up emails trying to sell more of their products, of course). Unfortunately, the free version leaves much (very much) to be desired, doing little more than naming the landlord, tenant, and property, describing the length of lease, deposit, and property condition. There are no lead paint clauses, not even any sub-leasing or pet clauses, just the barest of bare-bones.

This free version is more likely than not to get you into hot water eventually. Plus, you have to fill out the full information for the paid version each time (seven pages worth in the tool) even though you aren’t using it. The tool does try to give you hints and advice that are specific to your state; in some cases, this was useful; however, we also saw that some of it were incomplete, possibly incorrect. It appears that they attempt to determine if you are in a URLTA area or not, but it seemed a little confused about the results.

If you’re willing to spend $30 for the better version, it looks like a reasonable starting point, and the wizard is quite customizable. You should definitely pass on the free version, though, in my opinion.
