real estate laws

Where do I find the regulations for real estate in Missouri? Should I speak to my lawyer about this? This may be a stupid question, but I am just wanting to get all the facts before I start real estate investing.

Look over to the left at investor resources, the link to the above page was found under Investor Resources → State Property Codes.

check your state website under something like consumer affairs, etc. You might find some good plain english resources as LL-tenant disputes are very high on the list of consumer complaints in most areas.
