    Southbridge Mon May 2: Forms and Procedures

    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    05/02/2022

    Our May presenter will be Attorney Mark Burrell. Attorney Mark Burrell specializes in landlord/tenant law and has been representing landlords in the housing and district courts for more than 30 years. He is well known to Judges, mediators and court personnel. Always willing to share insights into the best ways to handle uncooperative (and even cooperative) tenants both in and out of the courts, he does so with illustrative examples and stories to make the message stick.

    Attorney Burrell will speak about correct forms and procedures. We see many contracts that are inadequate or forgotten that create problems for landlords. This is what we wish to avoid and make sure our landlords are up to date and protected.

    Once again, we will be trying to have a hybrid meeting, that is, both in person and Zoom. If you attend in person, wearing a mask will be up to individual discretion. 

    In an effort to get back to “normal”, pizza and soft drinks will be available during our social hour.

    All members whose dues are up to date will be sent a Zoom link to the meeting via email. From that email, click the link and it will bring you to the meeting.

    Whether or not you choose to attend in person, please be safe.

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed May 4: Tenant Screening and Rental Applications

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    05/04/2022

    This presentation will focus on foundational skills in tenant screening and rental applications. We will cover:

    • A refresher on the protected classes and avoiding discrimination,
    • Creating your own rental application, or using MassLandlords’,
    • Evaluating information presented on an application,
    • Checking housing history, credit reports and criminal records,
    • Using the applicant qualifier to select the likeliest most successful applicant while still providing equal housing opportunity.

    Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to use the MassLandlords rental application and applicant qualifier (or how to develop your own), how to access third party services to verify information presented, and how to rent for success.

    Rental applications turn every landlord into a detective. We’ll show you how.

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed May 11: Insulation and Air Sealing for Lower Bills, Greater Comfort and Climate

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    05/11/2022

    This presentation will review the Mass Save® insulation and air sealing program for rental properties of all sizes.

    Mass Save® and associated programs are offering landlords full building insulation, air sealing, and weatherization with generous incentives. Starting with the new three-year plan in 2022, for 1-4 unit buildings, “generous” means 100% of costs are covered by the program for rental units. For landlords with 5 units or more, 75% to 90% of costs will be covered. There is no catch: we have already paid for this on our utility bills, in the “Energy Efficiency Chg” line item.

    We will teach:

    • How to save thousands of dollars in capital costs per unit.
    • How a 30% lower heating bill is possible with attic and wall insulation.
    • Special situations including electrical meters, brick and aluminum siding, and low-setback buildings.
    • Knob-and-tube and the HEAT loan to reducing barriers.
    • Why now is the best time to insulate.
    • What additional benefits the program suite provides.
    • And more!

    Attendees will leave knowing how to insulate and air seal each rental property through the Mass Save® program.

    Part of this event will be presented by Rick Taglienti of Rogers Insulation Specialists Co. Inc. Rogers is a Mass Save partner based in Framingham covering eastern Massachusetts. Rogers have received an average Google rating of 5.0 stars over 150 reviews. Rick has worked in insulation since high school. He serves on the Board of Directors for the Better Business Bureau and holds a Construction Supervisor License.
