Program Information:

Since 1989, this nationally recognized program has taught over 19,600 Portland-area owners and managers representing over 400,000 rental units on how to keep illegal activity out of rentals, maintain property in compliance with City maintenance regulations, and partner with City services/programs both to provide habitable housing and protect their residential property investment. The Landlord Training Program is made available by funding received from the Portland Police Bureau, Portland Fire & Rescue, Portland Housing Bureau and Bureau of Planning and Sustainability.

This program is constantly updated to current laws and issues, and has been adopted by over 550 cities and counties across the nation. The content of the course reflects in-depth research with organizations and individuals in police work, housing maintenance, property management, law, and public housing.

The Workshop focuses on keeping rental properties safe and free of illegal activity by training landlords in effective property management, and techniques for dealing with illegal activities by tenants.

We know it works. Property owners who have enacted these practices improve our community by taking simple steps that help prevent illegal activity, property destruction, and maintenance-related problems. Past trainees describe the class as both helpful for their business and beneficial to the community. It is far less expensive for both the City and property owners to work in partnership to prevent problems before they occur rather than take the more costly path of crisis intervention after problems begin.

Past attendees report benefits from attendance that include:

  • A stabilized, more satisfied tenant base with increased demand for rentals.

  • Lower maintenance and repair costs.

  • Improved property values.

  • Improved level of personal safety for both tenants and neighbors.

  • Peace of mind from spending less time on crisis control.

Landlords tell us that the course provided them with screening tips they hadn't considered and also helped them deal successfully with tenants involved with destructive and/or in illegal activity. Surveys indicate that over 90% of landlords who attend the training make beneficial changes in the way they manage their property as a result.

If you haven't attended already, we ask you to attend a future Landlord Training Program seminar.
