Lake Erie Landlord Association


The Lake Erie Landlord Association, LELA, (founded in 1988), is a non-profit, educational organization providing a means for exchanging land-lording and real estate information. We strive to educate, inform, exchange ideas and improve the status, as well as the financial well being of all housing providers. Our members are known locally as landlords that work to improve the condition of housing for everyone.

The monthly meeting programs consist of prominent speakers in areas of general interest to landlords, property managers and real estate investors. We also provide a platform for open forums to discuss issues our members are facing in the field, and tons of networking opportunities. Monthly meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM. We meet at Miraldi Hall @ Heritage Presbyterian Church, 515 Leavitt Rd Amherst, OH 44001.
