Part I: Emotional Support Animals

How can you distinguish the $80 "Emotional Support Animal" online special from the real deal without denying a legitimately disabled person the chance for equal housing opportunity? We'll be reviewing the different types of animals that can be requested, the correct way for landlords to engage without giving in or denying outright, and some case studies of where the process has gone off the rails.

This part of the presentation will be given by Kristina Khoury of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

Part II: Ask the Experts

We'll be having a round table (really, whole room) discussion about any rental real estate topics. This meeting is a great opportunity for our members to learn from each other's experiences. Bring your questions about tenant issues, lease agreements and addendum, best practices or share your knowledge to answer other members questions.

The discussion will be moderated by a panel of experienced landlords and attorneys.
