Part I: The Certified Massachusetts Landlord™ In-Depth
MassLandlords is launching our new optional state-wide certification! This segment will review the certification in-depth, covering best practices,
the upcoming exam, and our continuing education opportunities.
We will start with the certification context, including a review of existing professional certifications for
owners and managers of residential real estate. Then we'll review the motivations for creating our own program, and share our end vision.
We will give a step-by-step guide for how to start certification online and what to expect with the exam, which will be available January 2020.
This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff.
Part II: Eviction and Serving Notices to Quit
Try as we might, not every tenancy is stable and not every tenant recognizes this and leaves promptly. Sometimes we need to start "summary process", which is the legal term
for a Massachusetts eviction. This segment walks us through the eviction process with emphasis on the serving of notices by constables and sheriffs.
Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of the notice to quit, summons and complaint, and execution. We'll go over how to serve notice and will share
some stories of service gone wrong.
This part of the presentation will use MassLandlords repertoire slides and will be given by Mark Weisberg, constable.
