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.

2019 Toys For Tots Donation


In the Spirit of Giving

As most of you remember, last year, as an Association we gave over 220 toys to local children in need. This year I challenge you to DOUBLE that. From November 1st until December 13th, our office will again be a drop location for Toy for Tots for Lorain County. Every member that drops off a qualifying toy will receive one raffle ticket per qualifying toy that goes towards winning a special gift! This year we are purchasing $150 in lottery tickets for a special “lottery ticket train” that could be yours and yours alone! The winner will be drawn on December 16th, after Toys For Tots picks up our box on December 13th. (Make sure you put all your contact information on the part of the ticket you leave for us so we can get a hold of you!!)
