Rental Property Owners

Founded in 1939, the East Bay Rental Housing Association is committed to assisting, serving and educating local rental property owners and managers.  Membership with EBRHA is an exercise in preventative maintenance–knowing the potential problems and pitfalls of rental property ownership and how to avoid costly errors with best practices–is what we are all about.

Rental property ownership in Alameda County, especially in Oakland and Berkeley, is more complex than in most parts of the country. We advise our members on the best policies and procedures to stay in compliance with federal, state and municipal laws while maximizing their bottom-line.
