This presentation will give a legal overview of landlording, focusing on the common mistakes that landlords make, especially those that are the most costly.
We will review basic requirements of:
- Security deposits
- Tenant screening and anti-discrimination
- Lead paint
- Notices to quit
- Sanitary code
- Prerental inspections
- and more.
This presentation will not be an in-depth review of any particular topic, each of which could be an entire presentation on its own. But we will give a general compliance check. And we will reserve lots of time for questions so that we can make sure to answer your particular concerns, or at least point you in the right direction for next steps.
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.
"Attorney Greenman is such a great source of common sense and specialized wisdom!" -David

Having worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a different perspective which he applies to real estate.
