"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."
Russell Sabadosa, East Longmeadow
On the value of events: "The cheapest way to learn is from someone else's mistakes."

    Worcester Wed 10/9: Repair and Renovation Laws and Regulations, How to Vet and Manage Contractors

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    Worcester Technical High School
    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?

    Market your business, pick up handouts, give away an old doorknob. Everything goes on our first-come, first-served display table at all our events. Please bring business cards, brochures, coupons. And feel free to pick up your own uncollected marketing materials at the end. Everything not claimed end-of-event may be chucked.

    “No Sales Pitch” Guarantee

    MassLandlords offers attendees of directly managed events a “No Sales Pitch” guarantee. If a guest speaker offers services, their presentation will not discuss pricing, promotions, or reasons why you should hire them.
    We do not permit speakers to pay for or sponsor events. Guest speakers are chosen for their expertise and willingness to present helpful
    educational content. Your purchase of an event ticket sustains our nonprofit model.
