  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Dec 2: Insurance Overview for Rental Properties
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    12/02/2020

    Insurance is one of the “big three” expenses alongside mortgage and
    real estate taxes. If you have a claim, insurance can decide
    the fate of your business.

    For instance, did you know that basic policies won’t pay to fully rebuild a
    grandfathered building? Sprinklers would be at your expense without
    special coverage. Are you prepared for any disaster?
    Whether it’s a fire or a lawsuit, you need insurance to protect your assets.
    This presentation will give an overview of special considerations
    that owners familiar with only single family insurance
    won’t know. We will cover basic and
    advanced considerations:

    • Residential vs commercial insurance.
    • Valuations
      • Replacement cost.
      • Functional replacement cost.
      • Actual cash value.
    • Ordinance or law coverage.
    • Protective safeguards
      • Protective class.
      • Construction.
      • Smoke/fire detection.
      • Sprinkler systems.

    Peter Normand of Webber & Grinnell
    will be presenting
    multifamily insurance overview
    Multifamily insurance is not like normal
    residential insurance (if yours is, it’s missing
    some things)

    Part of this presentation will be given by Peter Normand,
    CLCS.
    Pete joined Webber & Grinnell in 2017 and he currently
    leads the agency’s Real Estate Practice Group. Pete is passionate about protecting
    investments and dreams. He provides comprehensive insurance and risk
    management solutions based around his clients’ businesses and goals. Pete
    holds his OSHA 10 Construction certification and is working on his OSHA 10
    General Industry certification. Prior to working in the insurance industry, Pete
    worked in manufacturing, supply chain, and has owned rental properties in
    Vermont and Western Massachusetts. Pete is a graduate of the University of
    Massachusetts and a Western Mass native. He lives in Northampton with his wife
    and two children.

    Part of this presentation will be given by Jerry Zanarini, Regional
    General Adjuster at Advanced Adjustment Service, Inc.
    Jerry is a
    licensed construction supervisor and registered home improvement
    contractor, as well as an accomplished project and
    restoration management professional. He has an extensive background
    in construction, insurance estimation, scheduling, budgeting, and
    maximizing profitability. He has been with Advanced Adjustment
    Service since 2014. Prior to that he was a project manager at
    Complete Restoration Solutions for four years. Prior to this, for 22
    years he helped build Sears/K-Mart stores across the US, including a 250-phase project completed three
    weeks early.

  • Webinar Friday Dec 4: Early Warning System
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    12/04/2020

    MassLandlords has developed an “early warning system” for bills,
    ordinances, and hearings. This system can alert members and staff to
    housing-related issues so we can provide timely testimony at hearings. We need
    your help to make the system work!

    This webinar will review Massachusetts housing policy and give a demonstration of the
    early warning system:

    • How does an idea become law in the state or a city or town?
    • Where are public notices posted?
    • Why did we develop this system?
    • What does the early warning system do?
    • Has it made a difference?
    • Who can participate?
    • What do I do if I find something?
    • How do I sign up?

    This presentation is timely because the next legislative session
    begins in January. Help us track the bills that will be filed!

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,000 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  • Virtual Meeting Thursday December 10: Settling Landlord-Tenant Disputes
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    12/10/2020

    Rental agreements are a roadmap for landlord-tenant relationships,
    but what happens when one side says another isn’t holding up their
    end of the bargain? Dispute resolution may take many forms.

    We’ll look at the qualities of a rental agreement that tend to
    prevent disputes escalating, and then we’ll discuss the various
    options for resolving disputes:

    • Conversation
    • Community mediation
    • Going to court
    • Pre-trial mediation
    • Mediated agreements for judgment
    • Cash-for-keys agreements
