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 provides education to landlords through one-on-one counseling with HUD certified counselors.

Connection – LEAN provides the opportunity for landlords and potential tenants to connect. The LEAN program is always in need of more landlords with openings. We regularly receive request from tenants in the market for housing and see the benefits for both tenants and landlords who are able to connect through rental counseling.

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.
