In his first year as a landlord, Raj had never approved a tenant with a criminal history or past substance abuse issues. Then he met Alena, a homeless mother with two young boys, and learned about LLP.
"I thought about it, Googled the Landlord Liaison Project, and said OK, let’s meet and talk about it. I just wanted to try it out,” he said.
Raj has not regretted his decision to take a chance on Alena. "When I met you, I didn’t see anything that would stop us from moving forward. I've had really good experiences with you — you’re communicative, you pay rent on time; it makes my job easier.”
Partnering with LLP has been a rewarding experience for Raj, and is one that he recommends to others. “I have definitely seen progress in her life, she has come a long way. You know, just taking that chance for a landlord, sometimes is worth it.”
