Linn-Benton Rental Housing Association is a membership based, non-profit organization of landlords. Our members own or manage properties in Albany, Corvallis, Lebanon, Sweet Home, Philomath and other communities in the Central Willamette Valley.
We are a local organization dedicated to helping our members from the private rental owners to the larger property management companies; through our educational meetings, seminars, and newsletters. Our members can share problems, solutions, and ideas with other landlords to ultimately help all of us become better and more profitable landlords.
We are a member of the Oregon Rental Housing Association (ORHA) which allows our membership to be part of a much larger and more powerful lobbying group dedicated to passing fair and balanced Landlord/Tenant Laws and legislation.
We invite you to check out our website, look at the benefits LBRHA offers rental owners, and see how we can help you prosper to the fullest from your rental investments.
