The Forms You Need

One of the advantages of being a member of BPOA is having access to a wide array of useful forms, some of which have been created just for our members. For example, The BPOA RENTAL AGREEMENT F09 is specific to Berkeley and includes lead, asbestos and sex offender language. You can view the complete list of available forms here, but only members can download.

Landlord Tips and Techniques • May 1, 2007

THERE IS NO REASON TO BE COMPLACENT

THERE IS NO REASON TO BE COMPLACENT  

The rent board is proposing another increase in your fees without even delivering a line item budget as to where the fees are going! The rent board budget delivered to BPOA very possibly violated an important act regarding public disclosure that applies to the city of Berkeley! There is a push to put another property tax on your BIG LIST of special assessments! The deadline for soft story compliance for almost all owners is less than a year away now!  

We will have an extremely popular speaker, Robert Silverman, estate planning expert with real and valuable tips on how to keep more of your hard earned dollars, and how to make sure you heirs are well taken care of. Greg McConnell will speak about legislative and other issues facing you and your investment property now. BPOA continues to deliver the secret and also the not so secret ways to maximize your investment, limit your liability, and have fun with other property owners in the meantime.
