Richmond Property Owners Association


The Richmond Property Owners Association (RPOA), formerly known as the Richmond Apartment Owners Association (RAOA), was founded in 1996 by 40 interested Owners/Managers who wanted to bring together apartment owners in the Richmond, Virginia community to network with each other, buy and sell real estate, and help each other with the daily challenges of rental real estate. Since then, we’ve evolved into all types of property ownership and welcomed members from the apartment, residential and commercial property management and ownership arena. 

Upcoming events


Richmond Property Owners Association membership is available for any owner or manager of one or more rental units, and/or vendors of goods or services, who are interested in having a voice in their future in the City of Richmond and surrounding areas. 

RPOA offers two types of memberships. The regular membership is for owners, managers and/or investors in the rental housing industry. Our associate membership is for products and service companies who serve the apartment industry in their daily business. Both types of membership enjoy all the benefits our Association provides.

  • Our voices and physical appear needs to be seen and heard at all the bi-monthly city council meetings with speakers in opposition until the June 19 CAO deadline.   Public comment is limited to only 8 slots each meeting which must be reserved early on a first come first scheduled basis.  Speakers are limited to 3 minute maximum, so a couple good talking points is more than sufficient.  We need speakers for all of the following dates:  3/27, 4/10, 4/24, 5/8, 5/22, 6/5 and we need to register ASAP before the slots are committed to others.

Unfortunately, this will be our only chance to help dictate the boundaries of a forthcoming “Rental Inspection Program” that will ultimately be implement in RVA.  We need to make sure that the terms and conditions are as palatable as possible, so we need everyone’s participation to make as large an impact.
