"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."

    For “The Growing Liability of Mold,”, we’ll talking about a surprising new side-effect of climate change and energy efficiency: mold.
    Buildings are tighter and warmer than ever before, and the incidence of mold allergy, asthma, and other respiratory illness is increasing. Landlords are increasingly
    held liable. Find out what kinds of cases there have been, what the damages were, and how you can protect your tenants and thereby your business.

    founding partner of Farber and Lindley has been practicing law for over 30 years. Attorney Farber
    concentrates his practice on landlord-tenant law, discrimination, wrongful discharge from employment,

    in the Housing, District, Superior and Federal Courts, and before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.
    He has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation since 2010.

    1 Muddy Ln, Marlborough, MA 01752, USA

    This event has been canceled due to NWS forecast of 9-13″ of snow.

    We’ve picked two different topics to provide something for everyone.

    If you’re looking to make a new investment, don’t miss Justin Manning from JJ Manning Auctions. He will be talking about getting a great deal on a new investment property by attending a property auction. The dream is finding
    an auction where you’re the only bidder, but even if there are others there (most common) learn how auctions work and how to make them work for you.

    If you have property already, it’s peak rodent season. Jim from Westborough Pest Control will be talking about rodent prevention and treatment. This late in winter there’s no food for rodents so you’ll see them,
    and for every one you see, there may be ten more in the walls. Come, learn, and free your business of rodent liability.

  • Worcester: Meet the Sheriffs; Disaster Show & Tell

    03/14/2018

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Canceled: Public Schools closed due to snow.

    Who would you call if you had to give a tenant an eviction notice? One option would be to call the Worcester County Sheriff. We’ll
    be talking about civil process (meaning, eviction notices) and all that this entails.

    We’ll hear stories of evictions they’ve managed, learn why we should hire professionals instead of doing it ourselves, and then learn how to do it ourselves anyway if we want.

    Make the acquaintance before you need to hire them. This is a rare opportunity to learn from experienced county officials.

    This presentation will be given by Lynn Trudell and two uniformed sheriffs.

    Meet the Sheriffs
    fire damaged building
    Disaster Show & Tell

    We’ll also be talking about disasters. Fire, smoke and water damage are preventable, but sometimes no matter what you do to prepare, disaster strikes. Not all disasters mean the end of your rental property. On the contrary, even seemingly total wrecks can be salvaged!

    In this part of the presentation, we’ll be looking at before-and-after pictures of fires and floods, hearing what caused them, and seeing how the buildings were restored to better than ever.

    Katie Daviau from BayState Restoration will be presenting the Disaster Show and Tell.

    Canceled: Public Schools closed due to snow.

  • Cambridge Tues 3-20: Making Communication Work with Tenants, Contractors, and Everyone Else; Up to $250,000 in Energy Upgrades for up to 90% Off
    5:30 PM-8:30 PM
    03/20/2018

    1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142

    1 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02142

    Cambridge Tues 3-20: Making Communication Work with Tenants, Contractors, and Everyone Else; Up to $250,000 in Energy Upgrades for up to 90% Off

    Part I: For “Up to $250,000 in Energy Upgrades for up to 90% Off,”, we’ll be reviewing MassSave and the
    incentives available to owners and managers of rental properties. This savings are funded by surcharges on all utility bills in the Commonwealth.
    It’s possible to get insulation for 90% off, new boilers or furnaces if your equipment is 30 years old, free weatherstripping, free LED light bulbs,
    free aerators, and much, much more. Program details are always changing so come to this event to find out what will work for you.

    Unfortunately, we booked the local utility companies far in advance, but neglected to tell them when we rescheduled this event series to the third Tuesday. They can’t come.
    This segment will therefore be presented by MassLandlords Executive Director Doug Quattrochi based on identical presentations given at other locations.

    Up to $250,000 in Energy Upgrades for up to 90% Off
    mocking bird argument
    Making Communication Work

    Part II: At your breaking point over tough tenancy issues? Unable even to talk with your tenant about the back rent?
    Powerless to exercise your rights until eviction is unavoidable and lawyers are needed?
    As attractive and profitable as landlording may be, tenant conflict can bring us to the boiling point!
    Although much can be done to avoid the crisis point with tenants, your profits AND peace of mind may vanish if communication breaks down!

    In this segment, we’ll cover the in’s and out’s of handling difficult tenant situations. Audience participation is encouraged but not required. We’ll hear some of your landlord war stories
    and teach what it takes not only to avoid unnecessary fighting but also to get your way when tenants want to stop you at every step.

    This segment will be presented by Peter Shapiro, author of The Good Landlord – A Guide to Making a Profit While Making a Difference.
    Peter delivers lively powerpoint presentations, discussion, and participation exercises.
