"Investing in rental property can be a wise move, especially now," said RHA Senior Deputy Director Cory Koehler. "However, owners who fail to dedicate enough time and money to manage their property in a legal and ethical manner can cause problems for our neighborhoods and the entire industry."
The education event will provide owners with information they need to help improve their property management skills or allow them to choose a professional property management company. The program includes 13 education seminars, including topics such as buying rental property in today's market, complying with fair housing laws, understanding rental property maintenance and using effective screening methods.
"We find that rental owners who fail to live up to their responsibilities and cause problems for our neighborhoods often are the reason local governments create new laws or regulations. Hopefully, this education program will reduce those problems."
