NOTICE:  Administrative changes were made to the Rent Well program as of early 2018.
The program is now only available to homeless service providers. 

Because of our commitment to tenant education, LifeABILITY is now using the Ready-to-Rent curriculum instead of the Rent Well curriculum. This curriculum covers much of the same information; the time and cost remain the same. Ready-to-Rent was developed here locally and is used across the country. Please check out the website for additional information – www.readytorent.org The biggest difference is that it does not come with the landlord guarantee.

So what does this mean for you, in the real world?
According to the Rent Well website – “In Multnomah County, every year only about 6% of our graduates ever have a landlord submit a reservation request on their behalf and of those reservations less than 1% need to file a claim.”  Rent Well classes were held in Washington County without the guarantee for several years.

While the guarantee is certainly nice, it should not be the primary reason for anyone to take the class. Many class participants may seek the class out because of the guarantee, but quickly realize the true value is in the information and learning a different way to approach their housing search. A similar approach is part of the Ready-to-Rent curriculum

RentABILITY is a tenant education training course using the Ready-to-Rent curriculum. It meets one 3-hour session per week, for 4 weeks.

We have had lots of requests for a quicker version of the Ready-to-Rent class, so we created our own brand new condensed version - it covers everything that is typically included in the 6-week version but at a faster pace.

The course provides a comprehensive overview of what it means to be a renter. Topics include:
☛ Know the right and responsibilities of renting - whether as a tenant or as a landlord
☛ Quit paying application fees only to be turned down
☛ TEAMwork: How to work *with* your landlord - or - How to work *with* your tenant
☛ What deposits pay for  - What is the tenant's responsibility and what is the landlord's
☛ Screening report (criminal, eviction, name/address) review - REQUIRED for graduation.*
☛ Individualized Housing Portfolio - REQUIRED for graduation.
☛ Written assignments in work book - REQUIRED for graduation.

*Screening report may be purchased for an additional $18 (due the first class)

This class meets every week on Saturdays (9:00am - 12:00pm)  through December 22nd.
