Contemplate the advantages of joining the BPOA and take the first step toward elevating your rental property management experience in Berkeley. With a strict RSO (rent stabilization ordinance) and ever changing regulations, it's easy to make a misstep. Don't put the cart in front of the horse! Before seeking tenants, to minimize risks and maximize successes, become a member of the BPOA! 

What We Offer:

  1. Exclusive Lease Package: Our Berkeley-specific lease package is meticulously crafted and adaptable to various property types. We've got you covered with all the state and local required addenda and disclosures, and optional addenda you may elect to include. Navigating the lease is made easy with its companion document, the Lease Package Guidance document. 
  2. Expert Insights: Access unparalleled expertise tailored to Berkeley's unique rental housing environment. Our team is dedicated to keeping you well-informed, compliant with local regulations, and equipped with the knowledge necessary to thrive in this specialized field. We are your resident experts on the Rent Stabilization Ordinance and can answer most questions by e-mail or phone.
  3. Tailored Resources: Explore our curated resources, attend informational sessions, and engage in webinars designed to address the specific needs of rental property owners in Berkeley. Access our extensive forms library, stay updated with newsletters, and benefit from continually refined Rental Housing Forms. We'll keep you informed about any new form, ordinance, municipal code, or fee related to rental housing. 
  4. Legal Referrals: While the BPOA does not have legal professionals on staff or provide legal advice directly, we offer expert guidance aimed at resolving issues without requiring legal intervention. Our carefully curated referral list guarantees that when legal assistance is necessary, we connect you with the most suitable lawyer for your specific case after a thorough assessment. 
  5. Networking Opportunities: We love a get-together! The BPOA hosts no fewer than four social mixers each year. There's no better opportunity than a BPOA mixer to meet with your fellow Berkeley IROs (Independent Rental Operators) to enjoy food and drink while trading stories, suggestions, and recommendations or just letting your hair down and having a good time! 
  6. Get a Glimpse: Most of our content is only accessible to members, but you can preview our Content Library, check out our calendar of upcoming events, read a copy of our newsletter, and watch a webinar recording of Fair Chance Ordinance Overview to get a taste of what we offer.
