HAPCO Philadelphia was consulted by the City of Philadelphia to help create an online one-stop shop for rental and investment property owners.

It’s similar to HP’s new Digital Handbook, in that the Philadelphia Landlord Gateway groups together in one place all licensing, permitting, inspections, and other resources you need to stay legal and licensed.

The Gateway’s online system goes “live” May 16th.

While the May 16th 9am to 5pm in-person launch event at the Philadelphia Convention Center is sold out, more tickets may become available.  HP will let you know.
