NEPA Landlord Tenant Homeowner Association Blog



Commentary on issues regarding property rights, this blog relays information on events past, present, and into the future in Northeast PA (USA). While facts are presented, an opinion may be thrown in the mix to make things more interesting. Corrections are welcomed by using the comments -  as long as we see documents to back it up.

As far as the comment part of this blog, we appreciated hearing from people literally all over the world! We generally don't publish the comments though because this is a local blog. Even so, comments published are rare unless they add to the story or a correction is needed and information sent was confirmed. Glad you're enjoying it though! We STILL have some freedoms here and intend to exercise them at will!

NEPALTA to join up with PROA

Started in 1986, the Pennsylvania Residential Owners Association is a statewide association representing over 8,000 landlords and 100,000 rental units. They represent the interest of residential rental owners in Pennsylvania state government by providing full time lobbying in the state legislature. One area they would like to have a presence in has been the northeastern part of Pennsylvania, giving folks the ability to become members via chapters. NEPALTA is happy to become a chapter with such a successful organization.

PROA provides lots of fantastic benefits for members from huge discounts at stores to educational material to help with the quest for excellence in providing housing.

Very important is a track record of successful litigation and actions regarding cities that target property owner rights via ordinances falling outside Pa laws and intent. And so now the reason for not going federal...we have a voice with the state.

On the legislative side, there are currently 41 common sense house bills relating to rentals such as amendments to the Landlord Tenant Act to help landlords deal with restrictions placed on them. Being a member facilitates your voice, as a minority, being heard by those who create the laws local governments follow.

For members, we will be having a meeting with the executive director of PROA where she will go over the program and benefits. Members will receive an email regarding the meeting. This is closed to membership only with NEPALTA, but once rolling as a chapter of PROA, NEPALTA will be glad to assist with membership questions.
