Comprehensive training for landlords is Friday

Cincinnati's latest landlord training session will be held Friday from 8 A.M. to 5 P.M. at the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, located at 2400 Reading Road.

The comprehensive session is designed to help building owners and managers curb illegal drug activity and other chronic nuisances. The program has been adapted for Cincinnati and is based on the National Landlord Training Program, originally supported by the Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice.

Presentation topics include applicant screening, signs of dishonest applicants, rental agreements, ongoing management, partnerships with residents, crime prevention through environmental design, warning signs of drug activity, eviction, working with the police, and Section 8.

According to the City's research, more than 90 percent of landlords who have taken the course agree that they feel more secure in their ability to screen applicants, are more likely to recognize the warning signs of drug activity, and are more confident in their ability to evict tenants engaging in illegal activity.

Funding for the training is provided by the City of Cincinnati.

Registration is required and must be completed by Thursday. For additional information, contact Katie Werner at (513) 352-2593 or at mary.werner@cincinnati-oh.gov.
