Need to learn how to be a property landlord? Lake Worth may show you

Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell believes some city property owners can benefit from taking a ‘How To Be A Landlord’ class Lake Worth is exploring.

LAKE WORTH — Lake Worth’s code compliance division has had its share of problems in recent years. But the city says it’s trying to address some of those problems.

One of the things the city is considering doing is offering a class that teaches property owners how to be a landlord.

At last week’s city commission meeting, Vice Mayor Scott Maxwell said West Palm Beach has one.

Maxwell said Lake Worth code officials recently attended the class with about 30 landlords. The officials spoke with West Palm Beach staff members later.

Maxwell said the city appeared willing to collaborate with Lake Worth on developing a similar class.
