"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: Avoiding Common Landlording Issues & Strategic Financing
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    09/13/2017

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

     

    We’re excited to welcome Attorney Henry Raphaelson to talk to us about all the ways landlording can go wrong and what we can do to avoid those situations. Attorney Raphaelson has 35 years of experience as an attorney in Massachusetts. He has a general practice with a specialty in Housing and has handled upwards of 15,000 matters such as evictions, restraining orders, code department complaints against landlords, and small claims. In his experience, Attorney Raphaelson has seen landlords who make too many mistakes because they are too busy or lax, don’t have the capital to maintain their investments or who become too friendly with their tenants. He’ll cover the soup to nuts on landlording issues and what we can do to avoid them.

    WPOA is also delighted to welcome Don Mancini of Kelleher & Sadowsky Associates to educate us on strategic financing. Don holds a certificate in Advanced Real Estate Finance from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has assisted his clients with commercial mortgage brokerage since 2012. With more than $150 million of mortgage financing completed, Don has a unique process related to the strategic design and implementation of customized mortgages for commercial property. He’ll be telling us about how to use the power of well-structured mortgages to our advantage. These are two intriguing and informative presentations that we can’t wait to hear!

    Have you seen our Leave Stuff, Take Stuff Table?

    We encourage everyone to bring materials in to share! You’re welcome to bring things like: business cards, brochures, items that could have a second life with someone who needs them, etc. The only catch is that we don’t have storage at the school, so the registration desk staff usually throw away what’s not taken at the end of the night. So we ask that you bring things in limited quantities as not to waste.

     


    “A fellow landlord, Attorney Raphaelson will impart upon us his years of landlord/tenant legal wisdom and take questions from the group. Premium Members can submit their questions is advance and will be given first priority in case of a time restriction.”

  • Springfield: Notice to Quit Do’s and Don’t’s & Making Solar Work for You
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    09/14/2017

    700 Wolf Swamp Rd, Longmeadow, MA 01106, USA

    700 Wolf Swamp Rd, Longmeadow, MA 01106, USA

     

    We are very happy to have Attorney Katharine Higgins-Shea from Lyon & Fitzpatrick join us to kick off our first meeting of the fall with a talk on Notices to Quit. When you decide to start eviction by giving a tenant notice to quit, you enter a minefield of delays and surprise costs. No one wants to deal with an eviction, but it helps to be prepared. You don't want to miss out on this valuable knowledge from Attorney Higgins-Shea.

    We're also very excited for our interview between General Manager of SunBug Solar, Aaron Simms and Executive Director, Doug Quattrochi. As the General Manager of the SunBug Solar office in Westfield, Aaron doesn't sell installations but helps owners find the best provider and financing, so he'll educate us on how we could potentially turn our buildings into power plants! Learn what other owners already know: that when you go solar and include electrical and heat in the rent, you come out ahead!

    “I simply wanted to reach out and express just how happy I am to have attended the landlording crash course instructed by Doug. The presentation and delivery of the information was flawless and I certainly have walked away with a greater understanding of the intricacies that govern being an above average landlord/manager. I hope MassLandlords continues to provide its members and the Worcester communities with resources that will further advance its development. Keep up the great work and thank you again!” – Michael Murray (Worcester crash course 7/17)

  • Cambridge: Rental Agreement Rundown

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

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

     

    In March 2017 we released our new rental forms to be easier to read and include new features like: a utilities table, prohibition of AirBnB, prohibition of Marijuana growing, friendlier terminology (Tenant > Resident), clear list of “will” and “will not”, and a library of optional clauses. Attorney Jordana Greenman will be reviewing these features in-depth, telling us the best ways to use our rental forms, and giving us tips and tricks for the MassLandlords forms. It’s likely that a majority of landlords’ rental forms are out-of-date due to changes in marijuana laws, just cause eviction/rent control and the infamous AirBnB. So why pay for an attorney to draft a rental agreement when Masslandlords members get ours for free!

    Complimentary Legal Advice and Landlord Counseling!

    Attorney Jordana Greenman, Landlord Counselor Peter Shapiro and Attorney Jessica Manganello will be offering 15 minute appointments between 5:30pm and 6:30pm during this event. If you wish to schedule your appointment with one or both of these advisors, email Alexis at agee@masslandlords.net. Please note that in order to schedule an appointment, you must have a ticket for this event.

    Attorney Jordana Greenman is an attorney and a title agent for First American Title Insurance Company and WFG in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Jordana also has a solo practice in Downtown Boston. Her practice consists of a broad range of real estate-related legal matters, including commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, condominium association representation, general real estate litigation and commercial and residential real estate closings. Jordana has a well-respected reputation for aggressively advocating for her clients' goals and ensuring beneficial outcomes at a reasonable cost. Her deep knowledge of housing court staff and procedures places her in prime position to win the results you deserve, and her refusal to nickel and dime clients for short conversations or other minor work makes her an optimal choice for representation.

    Peter Shapiro Landlord Counselor and author of The Good Landlord, has been a counselor, mediator, trainer, and a small property owner himself for over 25 years. He can help to strengthen tenancies, resolve issues over nonpayment etc., and to prepare if eviction is needed.

    Attorney Jessica Manganello of New Leaf Legal has just been added to our list of available advisors! Jessica specializes in entity formation, organization, maintenance, and business agreements.

    New Addition!

    Executive Director Doug Quattrochi will be going over all the Laws that landlords need to know. There are a litany of laws that we as landlords must follow, but it’s hard to keep track of everything from discrimination to lead paint. Doug will give us tips on how follow the laws and run a successful business. For this presentation, Doug will be accompanied by a special guest who will weigh in on best practices and what he would advise. Guest announcement coming very soon!

    In the past 10 months there have been a lot of major building fires all over the globe: the fatal fire in Oakland, the Grenfell Tower Fire in London and two fires close to home in Waltham and Dorchester. No matter the causes of any of these fires, landlords and property managers should educate themselves on how to protect their tenants and their buildings from fires. Landlords need to be aware of what the best construction materials are, what the fire codes are and how to uphold them, and installing the proper detectors and sprinkler systems. At this event, Waltham City Councilor Bill Fowler will be discussing how to prevent construction disasters like the infernos we’ve seen devastate communities all over the world and we’ll also discuss fire safety in existing structures. Following safety codes keeps your investment safe and could save lives.

    Rent escrow and security deposit reform are at the forefront of our legislative agenda. Moving forward — turning our bills into laws — involves advocacy on the part of MassLandlords members across the Commonwealth. As part of that process we are organizing a series of policy forums where members can get together to discuss current Mass. politics, lobbying for better policy and to learn necessary skills.
