The CDC eviction moratorium has been extended to June 30, despite lawsuits pending in Texas and Ohio. Closer to home, cities like Cambridge, Framingham, Salem, and Somerville continue to enforce their own local eviction moratoria. At what point does it end?
At this event, we will review the legal arguments and decisions in the Texas and Ohio cases. We will look anonymously at issues brought to MassLandlords' attention. And we will theorize on the interplay between these moratoria and state and federal subsidy. If the landlord is made whole, is that constitutional? What if the landlord cannot be made whole?
Residents of communities with eviction moratoria in place are welcome to bring their specific concerns. We will not be giving legal advice. This presentation will not create an attorney-client relationship. The purpose of bringing up concerns will be for MassLandlords staff to note your situation and follow-up.
Part of this presentation will be given by Richard D. Vetstein, Esq. Attorney Vetstein is founding partner of Vetstein Law Group, P.C.. He is a nationally recognized real estate attorney and litigator. Recently, Rich was lead counsel in the successful federal legal challenge to the Massachusetts Eviction Moratorium, which received national and statewide publicity. Rich's legal analysis has been quoted in the Boston Globe, Banker & Tradesman, Wall Street Journal's SmartMoney.com, Bloomberg News, and Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. Mr. Vetstein has also been selected as Metrowest Boston's Best of the Best Lawyers, and one of Inman News' 100 Most Influential in Real Estate. He is the former Co-Chair of the Boston Bar Association's Title & Conveyancing Committee. A dedicated advocate for property owners, Rich was instrumental in the passage of the Act Clearing Title to Foreclosed Properties, and has testified at the State House in support of the Rent Escrow Bill and many other landlord legislative initiatives. An intense advocate, Rich's efforts led to the indictment of a criminal syndicate in one of the largest real estate forgery schemes in Massachusetts history.
Part of this presentation will be given by Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman. She is an attorney and a title agent for First American Title Insurance Company and WFG in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Attorney Roubicek Greenman has a solo practice with a main office in Watertown and additional office in Downtown Boston. Her practice consists of a broad range of real estate-related legal matters, including commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, condominium association representation, general real estate litigation and commercial and residential real estate closings. Attorney Roubicek Greenman has a well-respected reputation for aggressively advocating for her clients' goals and ensuring beneficial outcomes at a reasonable cost. She was among the first attorneys to take legal action in response to the unfunded eviction moratorium.
