  • Waltham Wed Feb 5: How to Take a Security Deposit
    6:00 PM-7:50 PM
    02/05/2020

    175 Forest Street , Waltham, MA 02452, United States

    175 Forest Street , Waltham, MA 02452, United States

    Security deposits are one of the primary liabilities for Massachusetts landlords. If you make a paperwork mistake,
    you might owe your renter three times the amount of the deposit plus attorney’s fees. And
    what a lot of paperwork there is! First receipt, second receipt, annual receipt, conditions statement, withholding receipt,
    signed under the pains and penalties of perjury… Should you even bother?

    Well yes, you can successfully take a security deposit.
    We’ll show you how!

    We’ll be reviewing the law, the forms you need, and some concrete examples where landlords have made mistakes
    and paid for renter damage themselves.

    This presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff.

    You’ll be ready to take a fully compliant security deposit after this training
    This security deposit statement cost the landlord loads. We’ll show you why.

    Have you seen our Charles River volunteer website? Market data available on rent levels for Waltham and surrounding areas.
    We encourage you to also take the poll on your current views of the rental market.

  • Marlborough Tue 2/11: Lead Paint and Deleading with Mary Chabot

    1 Muddy Ln, Marlborough, MA 01752, USA

    1 Muddy Ln, Marlborough, MA 01752, USA

    Deleading is easier than ever, and more important than ever. Changes in 2017
    reduced the cost to landlords, but
    also changed the legal definition of lead poisoning, increasing our liability.

    This segment will give the basics of lead remediation: why lead is hazardous, where we find lead, and
    how to eliminate the hazard. We will review deleading methods, letters of interim control, and certificates of deleading compliance.

    This is not a moderate risk deleader training. Attendees will learn about the DIY deleading
    training that is available (typically, 12 hours), and will also learn about the costs and benefits of hiring professionals.
    Lastly, because this is a landlording event, we will talk about deleading with residents in the unit, how to navigate
    the arrival of children, and how to ensure both you and your renters stay happy and healthy.

  • Worcester Wed Feb 12: To Renovate or Not, Tax Escalation Clauses
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    02/12/2020

    19 Temple St, Worcester, MA 01604, USA

    19 Temple St, Worcester, MA 01604, USA

    Part I: Tax Escalation Clauses

    Leases have the advantage of providing long-term stability for you and your renter.
    But sudden real estate tax increases can destroy a carefully calculated rent and turn a lease upside-down,
    eliminating the net income you were banking on. Is there anything you can do?

    Come learn about tax escalation clauses, which when added prior to a tenancy can give you an emergency
    escape out of a losing lease.

    We’re review the section of the law that applies. Attendees will leave with the exact wording in our “Optional Clauses.” Finally, we’ll have a brief discussion on
    whether
    escalators should be invoked routinely or only in case of emergency.

    Part II: A Landlord Case Study: Does it Make Sense to Renovate Your Rental?

    Renovations can be costly and stressful. Does the reward justify the investment?
    In this featured part of the presentation, we will review actual numbers from a renovation in Fitchburg and look at
    the return on investment. Pictures will be in plentiful supply as we examine what this one owner did, and how they did it.
    Cost containment will feature prominently, as will the change in renter dynamics before and after the renovation.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Brian Lucier of Belaire Property Management. Member input and
    renovation tips are welcome.

    Tax escalation clauses can help prevent a municipality from sending a lease into the red
    qualified opportunity zones map Worcester
    To Renovate or Not? Presentation will be given by Belaire Property Management.

    700 Wolf Swamp Rd, Longmeadow, MA 01106, USA

    Longmeadow Thu 2/13: Rental Applications, Dealing with the Unreasonable in Smoking and Vaping

    Part I: Rental Applications

    The critical step in a tenant screening process is the rental application. Is it complete? Is it true? And is it enough?

    In this segment, we will review the general context in which tenant screening happens, covering credit, criminal, and housing history.
    Then we will review the MassLandlords application box-by-box, with examples completed. Can we verify their prior address? What do their pay stubs look like, or
    do they have proof of subsidy or other income? Why does it say “etc.” under pets? Finally, we’ll give guidance on how to communicate acceptance or rejection, and
    why ghosting an applicant may come back to haunt you.

    Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to use the MassLandlords rental application, how to verify information presented, and how to rent
    knowing your new customers are likely to succeed.

    Part II: Dealing with the Unreasonable in Smoking and Vaping

    Attorney Larry Farber will share a “must see” case study in dealing with
    unreasonable requests regarding smoking and vaping. He will also share
    suggestions for what to include in a lease or addendum to spell out the
    smoking and vaping policy at your rentals, whether for tobacco or marijuana.

  • Webinar Fri Feb 28: Buying or Selling Occupied Property
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    02/28/2020

    This presentation will go over the essentials of buying or selling occupied property, in other words, leased rentals. We will look at all aspects of the process:

    • Offer stage – what to include
    • Due diligence – what rental documents to request from owner/seller
    • P&S – ensuring correct terms
    • Closing ensuring transfer of last month’s rent and security deposits
    • Post closing – starting off relationships with new tenants on the right foot

    These best practices ought to be known by all brokers and REALTOR’s, but in practice some don’t. And even if yours does, it’s always a good idea
    as the incoming or outgoing owner to know enough to supervise. Security deposit liability, for instance, lies with us even if our agents do not comply.
