How an AAOA Membership Benefits Landlords and Property Managers

Whether you own income property in Alaska or Florida, Hawaii or Maine, manage a large apartment complex or just rent out a room in your home, you need the support of the American Apartment Owners Association (AAOA). With over 134,500 members nationwide, AAOA has been providing essential services to every style of landlord since 2004.

AAOA members enjoy 24/7 tenant screening with instant results. Renters often look for a new place to live on the weekend, so you’ll want to be able to qualify them right away. There’s no need to wait until our office is open to order a rental credit check and/or tenant background check and no need to wait until Monday to get your results!

With membership levels ranging from Free to VIP, our tools and resources make the day-to-day work of property management more convenient. From real-time credit data to free landlord forms, our features empower you to perform more efficiently.


Free membership

With Free membership you can join the largest association for landlords in the country with no strings attached and purchase what you need as you go at retail price. 

As a Free member, you may order a limitless number of tenant screening packages. Tenant screening packages range from $19.95 to $49.95 and most include an instant credit report, background check, and a free LeaseGuarantee Analyzer. The Analyzer will tell you if your applicant qualifies for LeaseGuarantee which helps protect you in case of unpaid rent or damages.

When ordering our Blue or Gold tenant screening packages you’ll also have our Tenant Pay Option to bill your rental applicants for the cost of the screening report, so you don’t have to handle application fees. You will enjoy unlimited access to our team of live, U.S. based customer service representatives who will cheerfully lead you and your applicants through the screening process, including any questions you may have about the screening results. 

You can download over 20 free legal forms, including rental applications, security deposit forms and declination letters. AAOA also offers access to more than 150 State-Specific Premium Legal Forms, including a lease agreement, which can be purchased monthly or annually for a nominal fee. 

In addition, Free members receive our twice-weekly newsletter, AAOA Today, which includes the latest rental industry legal updates, breaking news, educational articles, and off-market investment opportunities. And every quarter we’ll send you a digital copy of RENT Magazine, the leading publication for landlords and property managers. 

If you’re looking to learn more and grow as a rental industry professional, AAOA also offers premium live and on-demand webinars for $25.
