Rental Property Owners (RPO’s) expect that when they buy an income property they would be entitled to all of the benefits that personal property rights entail, based on a fair and balanced system for allowable occupancy (as in the IPMC). This is not the case in a few municipalities in Iowa. HF184 seeks to change this.
As of this writing, HF184 has been gaining considerable, positive momentum for passage, yet RPO’s and Property Managers can take nothing for granted. Review these talking points, then call if they serve on the House Judiciary Committee or the Senate State Government Committee and ask them to support HF184. Also, please plan to join us for our Landlords Day on the Hill, Feb 5th. Block off from 10 – 1:30 for sure, but hopefully attendees can spend the whole day with us — from 8:30 AM in Room 304 to 2:30-5:00 at Quentin’s Bar and Deli, 506 E Grand Ave.
We will be sending “Calls to Action” specifically to those members whose legislator serves on these committees. Please do take action when the messages arrive.
In Iowa, the General Assembly convenes on the 2nd Monday in January, and the targeted duration of each session is 100 days. Every year, 152 elected officials who serve the State – 50 Senators, 100 Representatives, a Lt. Governor, and the Governor – convene and execute the business of State Governance. It’s a wonder to behold.
For Rental Property Owners, Property Managers, and Real Estate Entrepreneurs, we typically meet for a formal “Day on the Hill” event each year — Scheduled this year, on Feb 5, 2014 — to contact our elected officials regarding issues of importance to two industries — the residential rental property industry and that of real estate entrepreneurs, and stakeholders in those industries.

The excitement is building — Cynthia Schmidt, Andy Heller, John Hyre, and Augie Byllot are coming! (Audio interview with Cynthia Schmidt, after the jump at “Read More”). I don’t know that we’ll ever be as good as Jack Canfield and Steve Harrison were here in Cherry Hill, NJ, but there’s no harm in trying, right? (BTW, if you want to learn how to write a book, there is probably no better place to learn than at one of their events).
At IaREIA | ILA | TRREIA, we’re all about helping our members build the most profitable real estate investing or entrepreneurial business possible, across the full spectrum of residential RE investing opportunities and practices.
The IaREIA | ILA has been blessed with many outstanding vendor partners over the course of our greater
than three decades of service to the rental property industry in Iowa. Today we’re announcing a new vendor partner relationship with the Iowa Chapter of the American Lung Association, and more specifically, their Tobacco Free Partnership in Iowa. The emphasis of that effort has been to encourage multi-family complexes all across Iowa to adopt Smoke Free Community Policies.
Representatives from the Iowa Chapter will be at our Dec 19 ILA “Lunch and Learn” meeting to explain more about the program, and to answer questions. They will share more about the “Fight for Air Climb” taking place in Des Moines on March 16, 2014, which is a major fund raiser for the Iowa Lung Association. IaREIA has formed a team for this event will be encouraging any Real Estate Investors to participate.
