"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless."

  • Worcester Wed 10/9: Repair and Renovation Laws and Regulations, How to Vet and Manage Contractors
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    10/09/2019

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Part I: Repair and Renovation Laws and Regulations

    We’ll be reviewing Massachusetts laws on residential repair and construction.
    We’ll cover which trades require being licensed, which kinds of contractors must be registered,
    and we’ll cover permits and inspections.
    The goal is to give owners and managers knowledge to identify contractors who operate by the book, or a roadmap to become
    licensed in your own right. As landlords we
    must remain compliant at all times with the sanitary code and Chapter 93A the consumer protection statute.
    Improperly done work will land us in hot water with our renters.

    Part II: How to Vet and Manage Contractors

    In this part of the meeting we’ll be talking about best practices for jobs big and small. Can you screen a contractor
    like you can a renter, knowing that the person you do business with is not going to take your money and run?
    How can you get a contractor to
    show up each day? What do you need to do to protect yourself
    against delays, cost overruns, or bad decisions? How do you manage access
    to the premises, surprises, bidding, and subs? This will be a moderated discussion.

    These presentations and discussions will be given by MassLandlords volunteers and staff.

    How to Vet and Manage Contractors

     

    Have you seen our Leave Stuff, Take Stuff Table?

    10/15/2019

    One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA

    One Broadway, 1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142, USA

    Part I: Qualified Opportunity Zones

    The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 granted states the power to define
    Qualified Opportunity Zones, which offer tax-deferred
    or tax-free investment opportunities to
    landlords and businesses alike.
    We’ll review this process and show areas in your neck of the woods that would qualify.

    This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire and will be given by
    MassLandlords staff or an accountant TBA.
    (Want to speak?
    Let us know.)

    Part II: Laws by Chapter and Verse

    The Massachusetts General Laws will be made plain by looking at them in a logical, orderly way.
    We’ll glide over the laws by chapter and verse, pointing out the highlights, key points, and gotchas.
    After this presentation, you’ll be better prepared to find and read the laws for yourself.
    Anytime someone makes up, “That’s against the law!” you’ll be able to say, “Well, let’s see what section that might be in.”

    Do you have a sign on your building? You should! Have you told another landlord someone didn’t pay you rent? You shouldn’t! All this and more.

    This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire and will be given by
    MassLandlords staff or an attorney TBA.
    (Want to speak?
    Let us know.)
