Landlord Engagement
Action Network

Homes on the Hill recently launched the Landlord Engagement Action Network (LEAN), a network of landlords and tenants on Columbus’ west side. LEAN encourages responsible property management practices among west side landlords and tenants. LEAN empowers the rental community through education, connection, and resolution.

Education – LEAN hosts quarterly education seminars on relevant topics for landlords. We are always accepting suggestions for education topics from landlords in the LEAN network.

Connection – LEAN provides a connection to other west side landlord and tenants. LEAN coordinates bi-monthly LEAN working events where landlords can network with other landlords and exchange tips of the trade.

Resolution – LEAN connects landlords and tenants to the Greater Hilltop Shalom Zone’s Mediation services. Landlords are able to access a trained  mediator to peacefully resolve a conflict. LEAN encourages its members to utilize these mediation resources whenever possible.
