WELCOME

The Rental Property Protection Association (RPPA) provides best-practices, knowledge, and buying-power to providers of all types of rentable property.


If you rent-out homes, condos, cabins or other lodging, recreational vehicles or equipment, or other property, the RPPA is for you.

ABOUT US

THREE REASONS FOR THE RPPA

First, Purchasing Power: a community of many common-interest buyers 

will get better prices and better service than any single organization 

member. Common buying power is a decisive competitive advantage.


Second, to be a single-source online platform to share best practices

and great ideas on improving operations, revenues and profits.


Finally, to be a centralized knowledge resource for rental owners and

managers in all property segments to get, and give, useful information

to protect their property assets and grow their businesses.


The RPPA, with its affiliates, is a world-wide, across all segments,

not-for-profit service association for the benefit of its members.


No matter your organization’s size, if your business, company, club,

organization or group is a member of another related industry association

such as AAOA, AVROA, VRMA, OPMA, CHPA, NAA, NARPM, NMHC, NTOA or 

others, you automatically qualify for complimentary, no-cost,  RPPA 

membership.  Please contact us if you have any questions.

Tenant Screening & Background Check

Who rents your property is one of the most important factors in protecting it. Know your customers.

In recent years, a number of innovative solutions have emerged to help you fairly qualify renters to make sure they are the right fit for you. RPPA will be working on coordinating relationships with the best-of-breed providers in this field. For now, check out these member-suggested resources:

Appliances & Amenities

The furniture, appliances & amenities in your rentals need proper care to make them last longer.

Insurance & Protection

A vital piece of your protection strategy is insurance. There are effective & economical solutions.

Insurance is a contract, in the form of a policy, in which an insured  party (you) receives financial protection or reimbursement against losses from an insurance company. For rental property owners and managers, four of most obvious potential losses are: Contents Damage, Homeowners Policy (for business  purposes), Appliance Warranty, and Renters Insurance. 


As one of its first initiatives, the RPPA has created the Property Protection Program to secure lower-cost coverage for each of these four protection needs.  We’ve worked with established providers to create this Program to cost-effectively protect our members in these areas: group purchasing power in action. For information about this Program, email your request to MemberServices@RentalPPA.com.  One of our provider representatives will contact you.

Security & Monitoring

Physical security & site monitoring are required for rental property protection management.

Besides the long-popular home security vendors, there are newer companies providing some innovative tools to monitor and manage property access, occupancy limits, noise levels, water leakage and other risks.  RPPA will be working to coordinate relationships with the best-of-breed providers in this field, for additional member benefits.

Pet & Animal Services

Getting your properties pet-ready, or recovering from them, is a requirement for rental success.

Many property renters, tenants and guests own pets: some surveys report over 50%, even over 70% pet ownership. Preparing for, and recovering from, animal companionship is a key concern for property managers and owners. Check out these member-suggested pet-related and animal-services resources:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who can be a Member of RPPA?

Any business, company, organization, club or group that is a paid member of another property rental-related industry association or group, including but not limited to AAOA, AVROA, VRMA, OPMA, CHPA, NAA, NARPM, NMHC, NTOA or others (including their local or state affiliates), is automatically qualified as complimentary, no-cost, RPPA member.  If you'd like to know if a group you belong to qualifies, email us.

What does it cost to be an RPPA Member?

Membership is complimentary if your organization qualifies according to the above (prior) question: you must be a commercial provider in the property rental management industry.

May my tenants, guests or renters be RPPA Members?

While your tenants, renters, guests, customers, clients or group members may indirectly benefit from your membership and participation with the RPPA, they would not be qualified to be Members of the RPPA.

Who founded the RPPA?

The RPPA was founded by a group of rental property management professionals from the East and West coasts and the Mountain West. With  over one hundred years of combined experience in the field, we saw a real need for property managers to work together to control their own destiny in competition with large suppliers and distributors that are squeezing their revenues and profits.

With free membership, how does the RPPA covers its operating costs?

The RPPA, with its affiliates, is a world-wide, across all segments, not-for-profit service association for the benefit of its members. The RPPA cultivates and curates multiple non-exclusive relationships with potential vendors and suppliers to the property rentals management marketplace: with cost advantage and service benefits for RPPA Members being the key criteria. The RPPA earns market-standard referral, intellectual property royalty, and affiliate fees from those relationships to cover its costs: which are primarily member services, program development, affiliate administration, and website support.
