Free Landlord Training in Buffalo

Mayor Byron Brown is sponsoring, through the Save Our Streets Task Force, free Landlord Training and Workshop Sessions on Friday, April 1, 2011 from 8:30am-4:30pm.

“These training sessions are part of an ongoing effort to create safe, healthy and livable communities,” said Mayor Brown. “The program teaches and ensures the most efficient and safe rental process and home ownership in the City of Buffalo. It is advantageous for landlords to receive appropriate training for the management of their properties and their tenants.”

Rental property owners will have the opportunity to enroll in the Beginner Training session; which will focus on several areas including how to apply for repair loans or grants, inspection procedures, eviction and city court procedures, tenant screening and selection, fair housing laws, how to detect or prevent drug activity from occurring at rental properties and lead poisoning prevention.

The Advanced Workshops will also be offered that day. The prerequisite is to first attend the Beginner Training session. Attendees of the workshop may register for courses dealing with issues such as Building Codes, Maintenance & Permits, Property Management, Diversity Training and Tenant Selection, Evictions, Mold Prevention and Remediation.

Training Sessions will be held at the Belmont Shelter Housing Resources Center located at 1195 Main at Dodge Street. Ample parking will be available. A light breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided to all that attend, free of charge.

The deadline to register for the Mayor Byron Brown’s and Save Our Streets Landlord Training Workshop Series is March 16, 2011. Limited seats are available.
