Rental Owners Association of
Southwestern Oregon   

By Desiree Gaoiran, Staff Writer 

Joyce Edwards and Laurie Moore invite landlords to give them a call and see what the Rental Owners Association of Southwestern Oregon can do for you!
Laurie Moore, President of the Rental Owners Association of Southwestern Oregon (ROA) and Joyce Edwards, affiliate and past newsletter writer, are devoted to growing this very essential service provided to landlords and property management companies in our area. Laurie has been affiliated with the organization for over 2 years and Joyce has been heavily involved since 1984. Recently, the association has undergone many changes and they are continuing to strive to meet the needs of their current 200 members.

In 1978, the home builders association and landlords began meeting at the City Hall. The home builders wanted their own association and then in 1980, Hans Louvring and Ed Carlson, began the formation of what is now Rental Owners Association of Southwestern Oregon. The first officers of the association were elected in 1981 and it has continued to grow ever since.

This essential association was created for landlords to stay up to date on current landlord-tenant policies and procedures but the services that are offered to them as a member have since expanded into much more. Members of the association are invited to attend regular seminars where they can stay updated on landlord-tenant policies and procedures and have access to appropriate forms. The speakers from these seminars are a compilation of judges, accountants, fair housing information, and landlord  101. As a paid member of the organization you are entitled to 1 free hour with Attorney David Tilton, and recently they have created an automated help line that can answer your questions day or night.  Members pay a annual dues  according to the amount of properties they own. Not only is the fee extremely affordable but the valuable information you will receive is priceless.

Many times landlords are unaware of a change in a law and end up paying the consequences financially through fines. ROA is part of an umbrella organization and is made up of 14 member associations across the state of Oregon. You can visit www.ROHA.com for more information. Each year, state representatives are elected from each division and they attend legislative meetings and then inform the board and other club members of the changes that may have been made or will be made regarding policy. During the monthly meeting, landlords are able to ask questions during the question and answer portion of the meeting. Some of the classes that are offered by the ROHA can also be used as credit toward ones real estate license. If you would like to find how to get involved you can call Laurie at (541) 670-8857.
