Since 1975, the AASEW has been at the forefront of state decision-making on legislative policies that impact rental housing, advocating for both the good landlord and the good tenant. The Association was founded to oppose a proposed state law that would have allowed tenants to do “self-help” repairs and take the costs off the rent.
Below is a brief outline of some of the Association’s legislative efforts. For more detailed information on these laws please attend our general meetings or consider attending Attorney Tristan Pettit’s AASEW Landlord Boot Camp.

We have also worked with local governments to pass laws that improve the community as well as worked closely with community groups.
