SafeRental: Safeguarding Rental Housing

About SafeRental: Safeguarding Rental Housing 

Since 1989, this nationally-recognized program, created by John Campbell of Campbell DeLong Resources, Inc., has taught rental owners and managers how to keep illegal activity out of rentals, maintain property in compliance with city maintenance regulations, and partner with city services/programs both to provide habitable housing and protect their residential property investment. Since the program began, rental property managers and owners who have attended consistently report increased confidence in their ability to screen applicants, recognize the signs of illegal activity, maintain properties cost effectively, and deal with problem behavior should the need arise.

What is taught at the training?

The eight hour course provides instruction on applicant screening, crime-free lease addendums, warning signs of drug and gang activity, and the Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) method of property and ground maintenance to reduce and prevent crime.

What is the return for attending this training?

Property owners who have enacted these practices improve our community by taking simple steps that help prevent illegal activity, property destruction, and maintenance related problems which would otherwise contribute to neighborhood decay.

While these types of problems can result in enforcement action taken by city or county agencies, it is less expensive for the city, county and property owners if we work in partnership to prevent problems before they occur rather than take the more costly path of crisis intervention after problems occur.
