HAPCO Code of Ethics

  • As members of HAPCO, and as concerned and involved citizens, we pledge to preserve and upgrade the private housing stock.
  • As owners, investors, and managers of neighborhood dwellings, we are resolved to protect and improve our neighborhoods, to defend private property rights, to fight vigorously against vandalism, graffiti, decay, and home abandonment, and against punitive and unfair edicts and legislation.
  • We will cooperate with other members of the private sector, and with responsible authorities in the public sector towards these goals.
  • As local business men and business women, we will be ethical and honest in our dealings with housing consumers.
  • As entrepreneurs in a free society, we believe in the right to reasonable profit for our investment and management skills, just as labor deserves fair wages for its efforts.
  • Government regulation and legislation should be fair and minimal, to allow the private sector the reasonable freedom, competition, efficiency and economy, to provide good housing, and to derive equitable compensation in our supply of rental housing.
