This presentation will give a comprehensive overview of federal and state protected classes. We're fortunate to live in a country and a state where we cannot be denied housing because of our belonging to a protected class. But as rental housing operators, we do have to deny applications. We will review:
- The Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 1968 as Amended,
- Massachusetts General Law Chapter 151B,
- The full list of federal and state protected classes,
- Prohibited steering,
- Enforcement actions,
- And more!
Attendees will leave confident in our ability to offer equal housing opportunity while still screening for success in rental housing.
Part of this presentation will be given by Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman, a real estate lawyer and recipient of the Super Lawyers Rising Star award 2012-2020. Attorney 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 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 and has been working as co-counsel on a pro bono basis with the recent Boston Eviction Moratorium.
Networking time will be moderated by Patrick Sullivan. Patrick has been an avid landlord since 2007 primarily focusing on multi families in the greater Worcester area. Having worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a different perspective which he applies to real estate. He became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol treatment centers. Patrick sits on the statewide MassLandlords Board of Directors.
