Educating Landlords

Consider this analogy:

The Landlord/Tenant relationship is governed by a somewhat complex and always specific set of state and federal rules; much like the operation of a wide variety of motor vehicles upon the public roadways is governed. But who would advise new and inexperienced drivers to simply take the car and start driving?

Suggest they not worry about passing the drivers licensing exam based on the ability to demonstrate an understanding of the rules of the road? Recommend they just head out and drive? Tell them to use their common sense and to remember that as a passenger, they are already familiar with what other drivers do in specific situations?

The new, inexperienced or uneducated Landlord, who thinks they can conduct an effective and legal Landlord/Tenant relationship based on their past experience as a Tenant or having observed from a distance other Landlords and what they do, is no better prepared than the uneducated driver. While the driver will likely hit something and dent some metal, unprepared Landlords stand a greater risk of getting hit in the pocket book!

We have been a member of the MLA for years. We appreciate not only the variety of forms available for use, but the legislative updates and knowing that the forms are updated as the laws change. Most impactful, however, has been the personal one-on-one assistance available from the local chapter, and the MLA president.

If you have rentals you NEED to belong to the MLA. ALL the current forms that you want to be entering into a legal contract with a tenant with, expert legal advice from the president and meetings where you can actually learn something new and ask other landlords how they handle a certain situation. You simply can’t afford NOT to belong to the MLA.
