  • Information On Rental Registry and Economic Stabilization Program for the City of Jackson

    Welcome to The Jackson Area Landlords Association Website

      We are an association of area landlords and property managers whose common interest in the rental property ownership/management business has brought us together to facilitate achieving our common goals.

      Over the many years since our founding in 1974, we have been advocates for landlords from all over our geographical area. We provide advice on how to handle yourself within the legal system, and where we see a need for change do our best through our local legislators as well as the State Court Administrator Office (SCAO) to see that needed changes come to fruition. We have facilitated the expeditious processing of summary proceedings (eviction/recovery of premises) through changes to local court rules which has eliminated a great many hours of less than productive time on the part of our members and the courts. These changes have now been adopted throughout most of the court systems in Michigan. We have had forms changed through the SCAO, which clarified issues regarding escrowing disputed amounts with the courts.

      We provide our members with "how-to-do-it" manuals regarding tenant screening, evictions and collecting on those debts. We provide our members with access to an on-line database containing the names and other information on tenants both good and bad which have been reported to us by our members.

      For a small annual fee, we provide credit reporting services through TransUnion, LLC. Invoices are sent out at the end of the month and invoices for the service are emailed out yearly when due. We provide software at no cost so you can run credit reports 24/7 from the convenience of your home or with a laptop or from any Wifi enabled location. Reports are also available through our office and mailed or faxed back for a small surcharge.
