  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Sep 1: Rent Collection Software
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    09/01/2021

    There are dozens of services to collect rent in US Dollars online, including Venmo, PayPal, Apartments.com (formerly Cozy), ZRent, and RentHelper. Or should you use Bitcoin? This presentation will explore these options and more.

    We will start by reviewing the pros and cons of digital rent collection. For instance, digital rent collection has a big disadvantage: when you knock on a resident’s door to collect rent in person, you can connect on a personal level and learn what’s new and in need of attention. We’ll discuss this and other things we’ve lost with moving online. But the advantages are numerous: less work, more traceability, and custom payment schedules, to name a few.

    We will explain in-depth:

    • Fundamentals of moving money over networks, including credit cards and ACH.
    • Costs, risks, and effort required with various services like Venmo and PayPal.
    • Which services leave the owner in control of collections during eviction proceedings
    • What changes are coming now that Cozy has been absorbed by Apartments.com.

    Attendees will leave
    with an understanding of how money moves in the US and where to learn more about various methods for collection.

    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 2,200 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.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Sep 8: Are Eviction Moratoriums the New Normal?
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    09/08/2021

    The Supreme Court looked the other way, then the CDC extended their eviction moratorium through September. Then the Supreme Court changed their mind, spurring Boston to enact their own moratorium. And Massachusetts may also enact “state moratorium 2.0”, shutting down the courts for swathes of the population. Is this just what it means to be a landlord post-pandemic?

    At this event, we will discuss:

    • How the President acknowledged the CDC moratorium is likely unconstitutional;
    • What federal litigation caused it to end;
    • Moratoriums in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, and Framingham;
    • How the state legislature is being asked to create a “state moratorium 2.0”; and
    • What litigation might be brought to bear against all this.

    Calling potential plaintiffs: Federal rental assistance was available at incomes up to 80% of AMI, meaning roughly $38,650 for households of two. But the CDC moratorium covers households up to $198,000. So isn’t there a takings argument for the huge number of households in the gap? If your nonpayment case fell in the gap, we want you at this event. Also, if you are impacted by a municipal moratorium, we want to hear what is going on.

    Attendees will

    • Hear about our legal options if the state enacts a new moratorium,
    • Come forward with your CDC-covered, rental assistance ineligible renter, if applicable, and
    • Come forward with your municipally-covered renter, if applicable.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Thu Sep 9: What if I Can’t Afford Membership Dues?
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    09/09/2021

    At this virtual meeting MassLandlords staff will ask you to help us construct the “hardship waiver” process. A dues increase is on the horizon.

    After seven years without a dues increase, MassLandlords will be switching from “per person” pricing to “per units owned or managed.” Our benefits get better the bigger you get. A landlord with ten units, for example, will save ten times as much at Home Depot as a landlord with just one unit. A landlord with 100 units, for example, will be able to give their whole team logins, have them all on the message boards, and get them all certified.

    The pricing structure will have a “base dues” that everyone must pay regardless of size and a “per unit” component. These have been set by the Board of Directors. But what if your business has fallen on hard times? How are you supposed to climb out of it if you can’t afford to be a MassLandlords member?

    This collaborative event will go in the following order:

    • Short presentation on MassLandlords growth, last twelve-month financials, and needs.
    • Short presentation on new pricing plan, including adjusting dues up and down by region.
    • Moderated discussion on how to evaluate hardship for reduced dues

    Attendees will leave having learned and contributed: Why and how will MassLandlords be changing dues? How can all landlords benefit from MassLandlords membership regardless of their current circumstances?

    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 2,200 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.

    Networking time will be moderated by Patrick
    Sullivan
    . Patrick has been an avid landlord since 2007 primarily
    focusing on multi families in the greater Worcester area. Having
    worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a
    different perspective which he applies to real estate. He
    became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on
    Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol
    treatment centers.

    PLEASE NOTE: We had planned to hold this, our September 2021 meeting, in person. However, there were two matters in our decision to hold at least one more session via Zoom. The first was the uncertainty in the proliferation of the Delta Coronavirus: for planning purposes, we could not be sure that our meeting space at the Southbridge Community Center would be open. To avoid the chance of a last-minute cancellation, we thought it better to Zoom this session. Secondly, our speaker, Attorney Sherwin, has his office in Charlestown and is himself limiting his contacts with the public to his physical office out of concern for the virus. We hope you understand.

    All members whose dues are up to date will be sent a link to the meeting via email. From that email, all you have to do is click on the link and it will bring you to the meeting.

  • Marlborough Tue September 14: TeamSolar & Fall Pests
    6:30 PM-8:00 PM
    09/14/2021

    We have decided to change our September meeting to a Virtual Zoom Meeting.

    Our first speaker(s) will be TeamSolar CEO James Neal &/or Sales Manager Keith McKinnon who offer an interesting service that enables landlords, at my first understanding, to “rent” their roofs for little solar farms to get around the idea that any solar on a roof owned by the landlord must be used only to support tenants’ electricity costs. We will all learn more at the meeting.

    Our second speaker will be Hope Bowman, Chief Scientist Waltham Pest Services, talking about what pests to expect this fall with a handout that landlords can give to tenants encouraging anti-pest behavior.

    For members of other Masslandlords Groups other than MWPOA there will be a $7 charge for a ticket

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tue September 21: Use Tech to Be a Long-Distance DIY Landlord
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    09/21/2021

    Technology can save time, reduce risk, and earn higher rents by shutting off the water, giving renters keyless entry, and
    keeping vandals away
    all without us having to be there. Why would you ever attempt to manage a property without a little remote assistance?
    Come see what easy and affordable steps you can take to modernize your units, eliminate travel time,
    and get a higher return on your investment.

    Use-cases we will be considering:

    • Establishing network connections at a property with no office
    • Rekeying locks
    • Remotely controlling tenants and contractor access
    • Controlling / Reducing water, heat, or electrical expenses
    • Freeze protection
    • Leak detection
    • Security cameras and break-in deterrence

    We will be going over water leak detection and shutoff, smart locks, door and window sensors, video monitoring, and more. Also, we will learn about the latest self-resetting water sensors and landlord lock-out thermostats.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Mon Sep 27: Domestic Violence: How to Support Renters who are Survivors
    10:19 PM
    09/27/2021

    This presentation will advise landlords on how to support survivors of domestic
    violence, both current and prospective renters. According to the National Coalition
    Against Domestic Violence, more than ten million men and women are physically
    abused by their intimate partner each year in the US. We will cover this subject in-
    depth with a focus on rental property operations:

    • Brief overview of domestic violence
      • What does it mean?
      • What are the impacts? How many of us are affected?
    • What signs indicate an intervention may be required?
    • What happens if a landlord doesn’t act?
    • What can and should a landlord do?
    • How can you support a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault?
    • Can you lock out one renter to protect another?

    Domestic violence and sexual assault are never the survivor’s fault, but the survivor is
    often the one who suffers the legal and housing consequences. Landlords may feel
    the need to file a for-cause eviction
     to keep the peace with neighboring residents.
    This is far from the optimal course of action for all concerned.

    Attendees will leave knowing how to discuss domestic violence with current and
    prospective renters and which actions to take to ensure safe and healthy housing for
    all residents. Even if you do not currently have a renter who is a survivor of domestic violence, this training will prepare you to recognize the signs and act when needed.

    Amanda Mattingly is ICAPP Supervisor of the YWCA of Central Massachusetts

    Part of this event will be presented by Amanda Mattingly. Amanda is the ICAPP Supervisor for the Domestic Violence Services (DVS) department at the YWCA of
    Central Massachusetts. In her role supervising ICAPP, which stands for Intensive Co-
    Assessment Planning Process, Amanda works with survivors of domestic and sexual
    violence who are experiencing housing instability using a trauma informed social
    justice lens and wellbeing orientation. In addition, Amanda works on the DVS
    training team to train staff and community members on domestic violence, advocacy,
    and vicarious trauma. Amanda also sits on the Worcester Domestic Violence High
    Risk Team, the Housing Stability and Self-Sufficiency Sub-Committee of the
    Governor’s Council to Address Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, and regularly
    attends community meetings such as the Coordinated Community Response Network
    (CCRN) and Continuum of Care (COC). The YWCA of Central MA serves most of
    Worcester County and some of Middlesex County. Amanda's presentation will be
    relevant to landlords across the state, as all regions are served by similar programs.

    became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on
    Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol
    treatment centers.

    Networking time will be co-moderated by Dana

    . Dana started his rental business in 1994 with his
    first Multifamily in Watertown. Since then, Dana and his wife have
