About Us
Click here for Contact List of Officers

The Rental Association of Wenatchee Valley is an organization of property owners, with members in Wenatchee, East Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Cashmere, Chelan, Manson, etc. The purposes of the organization are:

1. Advance the general welfare of the rental industry.
2. Participation in local and state government.
3. Cooperation with local and state housing authorities.
4. Protect rental owners from unfair city, county, and state legislation.
5. Advocate a "Code of Ethics" to maintain high professional standards and sound business methods among members for the benefit of the industry and the public.

Why Join?

There are numerous benefits to membership in the RAWV.

1. Meetings – Membership Dinner meetings are held five times a year. It's a great way to meet other landlords and managers to share ideas and ask questions. There is time set aside after every meeting to ask board members rental management related questions.

2. Educational Programs – At each of our membership meetings an educational program is arranged. This is an opportunity for our members to discuss their problems, concerns, and to meet other members in a relaxed social setting.

3. Newsletters – Our newsletter includes timely articles of general interest written by authorities in the rental industry. (Ten per year, no newsletter for December and August.)

4. Legal Services – Limited free legal service plus reduced legal fees for members.

5. Screening Services – New privacy laws require Landlords to be a member of an Association like ours to do background checks on applicants. The Rental Association of Wenatchee Valley has an agreement with The Information Source, a Spokane-based credit/criminal research company. This simplifies enabling our members to obtain screening reports on prospective tenants. For more information, click here.

6. Rental Forms/Books – Updated forms are sold to keep you legal and help your business operate smoothly and more efficiently. We have two publications:

The Advertising to Occupancy and More (plus Eviction)
Available by download with your password, this information gives step by step instructions and includes all the necessary forms to get you up and running. These forms are updated as needed as legislation changes. Includes over 30 forms needed from occupancy to move out and eviction forms. It is recommended that you download the forms each time you need them, as they may have changed.

(You will need to use your membership password. This password changes every year, so be sure to keep your membership current.)

7. Associate Commercial members – Offering you a selection of local services and retail products, sometimes discounted.

8. Officers and Directors – Volunteering their time and talents to be of service to you. The phone numbers on the 3rd page of this newsletter are available to help answer your questions.

9. WAA Membership and Legislative Representation – Your membership to RAVW includes membership to the Washington Apartment Association. Your interests are served on vital issues by our State Legislative Lobbyist. The need for representation on laws affecting the rental industry is a constant concern of our Association.

10. Seminars – Subjects regarding investments, fair housing issues, drug labs, customer service, etc. given by professionals and offered at nominal cost to you are organized by our state group once a year.

11. Trade Show – Held annually with the state seminar.

12. Advertising - See a link on our web site to advertise your vacancies on Craig's List. Members can also use the newsletter to advertise their properties for sale. First two insertions are free, $50 thereafter.

(If you are a member of RAWV and you let your membership lapse, you will be required to pay $35 fee when you renew, to cover costs of re-establishing your account)

A United Voice – There is strength in UNITY!
