Since we posted our review of the Alberta Landlords Association last summer we’ve received a number of replies and they opinions in the emails have been strong in support of the ALA and all the services and tools they provide Alberta landlords with for a very low one-time registration fee..

It’s been a pretty interesting last 8 months for landlords in Alberta. Last summer and fall the media was reporting constantly on how life was so easy for landlords and tough for Alberta tenants.

We kept seeing articles like in Metro Calgary where tenants were complaining about rent increases. Even Calgary Mayor Nenshi weighed in saying Calgary landlords were ripping off tenants and only the a representative from the Alberta Landlords Association hit back with real information and took the mayor to task!

Almost overnight the stories changed.

With the price of oil dropping the media finally took notice in December 2014 and suddenly we began reading and seeing stories how the real estate market is dropping that there might even be a real estate bubble that will burst. These news reports have gotten even stronger in 2015 with so many inexperienced media people saying Alberta landlords are facing doom and gloom in 2015 and beyond.

Review of the Alberta Landlords Association

Our review post caught a lot of attention and led to a lot of landlords to look into joining the ALA. We recommended joining because of a lot of factors including:

1. One Time Registration fee

Unlike the traditional groups who charge high annual fees, you can become a member of the Alberta Landlords Association for only a one-time registration fee.

2. Excellent Alberta Rental Kit

All the documents you need and you can download them 24/7.

3. Private Members Forum

Thousands of successful and experienced landlords network and help each other in the Members forum which cannot be seen by the general public.

4. Educating Landlords

There are manuals and CDs to help landlords learn the ropes fast and learn tips and tricks.

5. Premium Credit Checks

As a member you get access to premium Equifax, Garda, and TVS credit checks to make sure you rent to good tenants and avoid the professional tenants out there.

Edmonton Landlord

A landlord from Edmonton wrote in her thanks for recommending membership.

She wrote: I used credit checks from the ALA and the applications and lease and it was all PERFECT!

We also had a landlord who rents out in Calgary send us the following: Joining the Alberta Landlords Association was the best thing I’ve ever done.

Is Membership With the Alberta Landlords Association Worth It?

Based on the messages sent in the answer is a resounding yes!

For only a low one-time registration fee landlords all across Alberta can get great rates for premium credit checks, the amazing ALA rental kit, and other helpful services and tools to help you succeed!

Many people say the credit checks and the Alberta Landlords Rental Kit is awesome.
