John Gollinger, Executive Director of the Waltham Housing Authority, is tentatively scheduled to give us an update on WHA initiatives including the Waltham rental subsidy.
For the voucher program in particular, we hope to hear statistics on how successful has the program been, whether there be an extension past three years or a follow-on program,
and what can landlords can do to help out.
Matt Naimoli of G&N Insurance will give us at least five cost savings and five pitfalls to avoid when insuring multifamily buildings.
Insurance Pitfalls to Avoid
- Insufficient Rent Loss Coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
- Insufficient Ordinance or Law coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
- Insufficient Liability Protection: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
- Insufficient Building coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
- Individual policies vs a BOP that extends across all locations: Advantages/Disadvantages of both options and how to choose what’s right
- Claim snafus – avoid massive headaches of there are joint ownership on properties within policy by listing all owners out per property in advance
- Missing Endorsements – guaranteed replacement, water back up, O&Law, etc
- Policy Reviews - Not having policies reviewed at least every third year and the downfall of allowing them to sit dormant
Ways to Save
- Deductible Changes and the impact: Examples
- Evaluating options on a consistent basis: Who and How
- Keep your replacement cost in check
- One policy vs separate per property
- Sprinkler system impact
- Know when and when not to file claims
- Update your property
