Cambridge Innovation Center - 5th Floor
Address: One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA

Weather Should Clear Up By Meeting Time:

As of 9/17/18 9:52 am: The National Weather Service predicts that the remnants of Hurricane Florence should have passed through Cambridge and surroundings by the time networking starts.

Part I

When it's time to raise the rent, can't you just declare the new rent level? Or what paperwork is required? Do we need to terminate the tenancy? Can they sign an addendum? How do we avoid discrimination, concessions, or other legal gotchas?

We'll be walking through the various ways landlords attempt to raise the rent and discussing the pitfalls with each approach. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the way judges want to see rent raises carried out.

This part of the presentation will be presented by Attorney Hannafin of the Law Offices of Shaun A. Hannafin, LLC.
