    Part I: Topic TBD, Likely Productivity Tools or Removing Mold without Demolition

    Consistent with our mission to pair topics of different characters in a single event, we’ll be trying to get something business/operations/money related for this shorter slot.
    It will likely be the continuation of November’s productivity tools. There’s a small chance we may be able to show you a new way to remove mold without demolition instead.

    Part II: Attorney Henry Raphaelson

    “I used to say I’ve seen it all, but all the new things this past year has shown me that isn’t close to true anymore.” -Attorney Henry Raphaelson

    This is the main part of the evening.

    For 35 years, Henry Raphaelson has been an attorney in
    Massachusetts general practice with a specialty in housing. He has handled upwards of 15,000 matters including evictions, restraining orders, code dept complaints against landlords, and small claims. And he has the sense of humor that can only come from having seen it all.
    Attorney Raphaelson is a speaker not to be missed.

    A hot topic now is discrimination liability for emotional support animals and Section 8. We’ll discuss this and any other matters you want.

    Attorney Henry Raphaelson (right) received very high marks at his last presentation in Worcester

    We’ve slightly altered our event schedule to bring you important information related to recently stepped-up code enforcement. Even experienced
    landlords with first-rate buildings are now being cited for fire code violations that were unenforced for decades. Now they’re being enforced. Owners
    in Chicopee, West Springfield, and Agawam have been given 30 days to comply from first citation. We want you to have advance warning.

    We have been in contact with Lt. Jacob Dushane, Fire Inspector, Agawam Fire Dept who has arranged for
    H. Jacob Nunnemacher and/or Jennifer Hoyt, Massachusetts Division of Fire Safety, formerly the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal’s Office, and Willie Spears, Springfield Fire Department,
    to come speak to us.

Technical note about purchasing:

Due to a technical limitation of our site, you will need to purchase tickets one at a time. After the first purchase additional tickets can be purchased with one click, without reentering your information.

If you have trouble purchasing online, mark your calendar and come pay at the door. If any event were to sell out we would send an email. Make sure you are on our mailing list and subscribed to updates about local events.

If you have any questions concerning events, please contact us at hello@masslandlords.net.
