Forms and Books

As a member, you have ready access to professional rental contracts and leases, notices, and other forms needed to protect your legal rights and financial interests. All forms are in compliance with the Revised Code of Washington (RCWs) and updated annually. They are multi-part, court-ready, self-carbon forms ready for use. Phone, fax, and email requests receive immediate return service by Priority Mail.

Local Presence

Most landlord associations are operated out of a private home office or in a corner of someone’s business and not dedicated solely to landlord support. The LLA office is open Monday 8 am-4 pm, Tuesday-Thursday 8 am-2 pm, and is dedicated entirely to landlord services.

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.


The LLA is committed to raising the professional standards of landlording and property management. There are regular classes and educational presentations on a wide variety of subjects at monthly gatherings, whether they are dinner meetings, classroom sessions, workshops, seminars, or other events.

Membership Packet

Upon joining the LLA, new members receive, at no extra cost, a membership packet worth approximately $50. It includes copies of our 40 forms and notices, the Washington State Residential Rental Laws book, the LLA Handbook, landlord training materials, and a variety of resource and referral information of real interest to landlords.

The LLA Mentor Program

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.


The Rental Review is our associations regular magazine. 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.


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

The LLA Board and dedicated LLA members monitor, research, testify, champion and testify on behalf of landlord issues for the LLA membership. 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.
