BPOA is the grassroots trade association that represents rental housing providers in Berkeley. Over 750 owners and affiliated professionals are members of BPOA. Most of our members are small housing providers. Whether you own one rental unit or multiple units, BPOA is the go-to-source for rental housing. We offer the resources and information you need to operate legally, strategically, and effectively. Our political and legal arm, the Berkeley Rental Housing Coalition, influences political decisions and defends rental housing provider rights.
Another advantage of being a member of BPOA is that you will receive our monthly print newsletter. From news and political reports to articles and advice, we cover the state and local issues you need to know about as a housing provider in Berkeley. Get your complimentary copy of a recent issue of the BPOA Monthly below.
One of the advantages of being a member is having access to a wide array of useful forms, some of which have been created just for our members. Our rental agreements are specific to Berkeley and are approved by Berkeley lawyers. Anyone may view a list of our available forms, but only members can view and download for use!
