The MLA is a statewide non-profit trade association dedicated to the concept that knowledgeable, well-informed,  and law-abiding members make better Landlords.

Membership benefits include:
  • the use of the MLA forms and documents bearing the MLA logo. Each of these forms and documents has been reviewed by an attorney in an effort to assure that it complies with the current statutes of the State of Montana, as well as Federal laws, to the best of our knowledge and ability. These forms and documents are protected by Federal copyright law and are to be used by current members of the MLA only;
  • access to the members only areas of this website;
