Calling All Landlords

Are you a landlord trying to do your best?  Are you struggling to find – and keep – the best possible tenants?   Are you seeking effective strategies for maintaining your property and even, perhaps, making it profitable? 
Join others at the next Troy Landlord Training sessions on April 22nd and 24th from 6-8 PM.  Sponsored by TRIP for landlords and potential landlords, the four hour program presents a variety of speakers that address tenant screening, code enforcement, the eviction process, Section 8 subsidies, renting to students, spotting criminal activity, and lots more.  As part of TRIP’s Green Initiative, information about NYSERDA and green practices in rental housing have been added to the list of topics.  Come meet experts who can help guide you to success as a landlord; presenters hail from Troy’s Code Enforcement Department and Community Police Unit, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, United Tenants, TRIP’s Rental Management Unit, Troy Housing Authority and more.
Created by a team of community members with the goal of improving the quality of life in Troy’s neighborhoods, TRIP, the city, Rensselaer and others worked with residents to create a Landlord Training Program to meet Troy’s rental market.  Since its inception in 2001, almost 1300 landlords have attended the 4- hour program.  Participants consistently give it high marks. 
The Troy Landlord Training Program is offered in spring and fall.  The next two part session will be held on Monday, April 22nd and Wednesday, April 24th from 6-8 PM both nights.  There is a $15 fee for materials and a light supper. Registration is required.
