Here are some quick links to my favorite local landlord organizations:
Rental Housing Association of Puget Sound - As a member, I use them for my lease forms, tenant screenings, etc. The group is well organized, well funded, and provides great service to its members at an affordable cost. www.rha-ps.com.
Washington Landlord Assocation - Similar to RHA, but covering more areas. Also seems a little less formal an organization. The provide forms, screening, and the really great benefit, their Vacation Watch Service. www.walandlord.com
Seattle REAPS (Real Estate Association of Puget Sound) - is aimed at 'investors', which include flippers, developers, etc., not just landlords. They provide education, a library, and good networking opportunities. www.reapsweb.com
Washington State Tenants Union - OK, it might be a stretch to call this a landlord organization. But, as a landlord, I think it makes sense to visit the site regularly and see what issues are important to the TU. As a former tenant, who had a terrible landlord, I'm not against a strong tenant advocacy organization. I think its great to have tenants who are educated to landlord responsibilities... and their own. http://www.tenantsunion.org/
If you know of another organization I should add to the list, let me know.
