Officially a landlord or manager? Which am I?

I'm obviously new to this-- please help.  I'm taking over management of our rental and drawing up a lease.  I am not the legal owner of this property (my husband is).  Do I put my name down as the landlord or his? Also, do I have checks made out to myself or to him? We have a shared bank account and are married, but I am unsure of the legal issues with this. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance, Eden

I would say you were the property manager, Landlord is defined as the owner of a rental property.
The checks/money orders etc. would be made out to the owner/company etc. which in this case is your husband. The tenant has contracted/signed for the lease term and therefore no rent/deposit is refunded.
Thank you all! I really appreciate the feedback.
