A landlord association gives landlords easy access to legal paperwork, information about screening and eviction procedures, notifications on changes in real estate laws and codes, and information about their rights as property owners. A landlord association also enables landlords meet other landlords, network with industry experts, and have their interests represented in their communities and states.
A landlord association represents the views, interests and concerns of its members on the local and national stage. Members of a landlord association share information and learn from the experiences of other landlords and industry experts. Members obtain free advice and access to a variety of resources, including eviction and formal letter templates vetted by the association's solicitors. A landlord association also offers helplines that landlords can use to obtain answers to specific legal questions.
A landlord association offers members discounts on a range of property products, including training courses, insurance policies and magazine subscriptions. Some associations run accreditation schemes that make landlords seem trustworthy to potential tenants. A landlord association keeps members informed about changes in municipal codes and how these changes affect them. The association helps members comply with the law, know situations in which they can stand their ground, and avoid lawsuits associated with wrongful eviction and discrimination.
