Government Affairs + Advocacy Efforts
RHAWA believes in the rights of rental property owners. This includes ensuring the relationship between housing providers and residents is equitable, defending property rights, and encouraging safe housing practices and policies.
Public Policy Principles & Agenda
Housing regulations should be fair and should minimize compliance burdens and costs. RHAWA believes housing regulations should not place discriminatory burdens on rental housing relative to other forms of housing.
RHAWA opposes regulatory fees on rental housing that seek to transfer the cost of general public services, including police and fire protection, to rental property owners and tenants. Regulatory fees and user fees must fairly apportion regulatory and service costs based on the services actually provided to individual fee payers. Government should not use regulatory fees and user fees to fund general public services that are available to fee payers and non-fee payers alike.

Achieving these goals is only possible with the consistent and passionate involvement of our members. Get involved at the local and state level with RHAWA’s Government Affairs team to help defend the rights of housing providers.
