ARLINGTON, VA | July 19, 2023 – Statement from Bob Pinnegar, NAA President & CEO, in response to the White House announcement on fees in rental housing:
“Rental housing is a narrow-margin industry that exists to serve our renters and communities. Amenities and services come at a cost, which is communicated with residents in the lease and the leasing process. Though the industry supports increased transparency and has always called for dialogue between housing providers and their residents, policymakers must recognize operational realities and the role that fees play in housing viability.”
The National Apartment Association (NAA) serves as the leading voice and preeminent resource through advocacy, education, and collaboration on behalf of the rental housing industry. As a federation of 141 state, local and global affiliates, NAA encompasses over 92,000 members representing more than 11 million apartment homes globally.
