Local Presence

The LLA Legal Plan

Each member is entitled to limited free phone consultations with our highly-respected local landlord attorney members. At present, there are 5 landlord attorneys to advise our members. The Legal Plan also includes reduced fees for professional attorney services, as well as free landlord-tenant law classes and landlord/property management law workshops.

Education/Classes

Experienced landlords are available by phone or in person at our gatherings for brief consultations when questions or problems arise. Hard-won information is shared firsthand from member-to-member at no cost.

Communications

It is published six times annually and has up-to-the-minute articles of interest about landlord issues, property management, financial matters, asset protection strategies, collecting money owed by tenants, background screening, eviction issues and other information absolutely necessary for those in the rental or property management business.

Networking

The LLA has monthly meetings or classes from September through May, plus other educational and social gatherings to share experiences, ask questions of the experts, meet others with the same interests, find mentors, or be a mentor to others in the rental business. There are usually financial, legal and other professionals from whom to seek advice, support and information at these functions.

Legislative Representation

They have taken the time to be trained and are committed to build relationships with legislators and local elected officials to make certain property management and landlord concerns are addressed personally by frontline, on-the-ground landlords and property managers.

The LLA Witness Program

Volunteer member landlords are ready to be a third-party verifier if you have damage or clean-up issues or a suspected abandonment you may need to establish in court.

Officers and Directors

Officers and Directors volunteer their time, talents and experience to be of service to you. Seven of the nine Board members are landlords or property managers and work hard to keep the association running smoothly, manage the finances to keep membership dues as low as possible, conduct fundraising, review the forms on an annual basis, monitor legislation that affects our members, and plan the classes, workshops and fairs.
