Spring 2013 Landlord Training Program: Protect & Maximize Your Residential Rental

Bookmark and Share

The City of Portland, Bureau of Development Services is currently scheduling its Spring 2013 Landlord Training Program. These classes work to build on a foundation of partnership between property owners, tenants, and city agencies to create safe communities and residences. This program is provided through funding by the Portland Police Bureau, Portland Fire & Rescue, Multifamily NW and Rental Housing Association of Greater Portland.

The Bureau of Development Services partners with the Portland Police Bureau, Portland Fire & Rescue, Multifamily NW, Rental Housing Association of Greater Portland and other City offices to provide current, effective information on property management to ensure safe, crime free rental properties. Presentations are made by Housing Inspectors, Crime Prevention Specialists, and Police Bureau Neighborhood Response Team Officers. These City staff are also available at the trainings to answer attendee’s questions.

This program has received overwhelming positive responses from attendees. Landlords who have taken the course state they feel more confident in their ability to screen applicants, recognize signs of illegal activity, and take action or deal with problem tenant behaviors when they arise.

Topics covered in the 8-hour training session include: property management to prevent crime or loss of investment, best practices in applicant screening, signs of dishonest applicants, rental agreements, crisis resolution/eviction, and partnering with police/crime prevention specialists/housing inspectors.

The classes are offered free of charge. At the end of each session attendees are provided a certificate of attendance. Attendance also is required for the Enhanced Safety Properties program through the Portland Police Bureau and the Office of Neighborhood Involvement Crime Prevention.

Please check the BDS website for this Spring’s dates and locations for this dynamic and informative class. Advanced registration is recommended and available on our website. Visit the Landlord Training Program website for the most up to date information on this program.
