"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."

  • Waltham Wed 12/4: Emotional Support Animals, The BBB for Landlords
    6:00 PM-9:00 PM
    12/04/2019

    175 Forest St, Waltham, MA 02452, USA

    175 Forest St, Waltham, MA 02452, USA

    Part I: Emotional Support Animals

    We’ve seen it: renters apply for “no pets” apartments and describe their animals as
    “assistance” or “support” or “medical.”
    What’s the correct terminology? What are landlords supposed to do to protect their property
    and also a renter’s rights when
    someone says they have a support animal? And what would land
    us in hot water for discrimination if we’re not careful? We’ll be covering this and more.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Alison Caton, trainer at the
    Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination.

    Part II: The BBB for Landlords

    We’re all familiar with the idea of the “Better Business Bureau,” but have you thought about how the BBB
    can help you in your business?

    In this presentation we’ll start with BBB 101. Then we’ll dive into how
    landlords can identify themselves and their detailed rental applications as legitimate, and why a renter can
    trust us
    to keep their data safe.

    We’ll also share a contractor dispute horror story, and end with how the BBB’s free services
    can be a preventative step before legal action becomes necessary, especially with contractors or other service provider disputes.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Amy Schram,
    Manager of Community Relations, BBB. The Better Business Bureau is a nonprofit public service organization
    with a mission to be a leader in advancing marketplace trust. The BBB encourages and supports best practices
    by engaging with, and educating, consumers and businesses. For over 100 years BBB has helped people make
    smarter decisions and is evolving to meet fast changing marketplace needs. The BBB101 program will be a
    discussion on Better Business Bureaus mission, and how to best utilize all of BBB’s free services to help make
    educated and informed decisions.

  • Worcester Wed 12/11: Why Your Buildings Haven’t Met Fire Code for 30 Years
    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    12/11/2019

    19 Temple St, Worcester, MA 01604, USA

    19 Temple St, Worcester, MA 01604, USA

    Part I: Why Your Buildings Haven’t Met Fire Code for 30 Years

    Some of us may be familiar with the term existing non-conforming, but
    as it turns out, fire code makes few or no exceptions. Experienced landlords with first-rate buildings are now being cited for fire code violations that were unenforced for decades. Now they’re being enforced. This presentation may amount to advance
    warning.

    It’s extremely important to understand smoke detector regulations, when heat detectors are required, and whether you need emergency pulls. We should all be familiar with sprinkler requirements for new construction,
    but what if a fire department demands you retrofit immediately? Can they do that? Will your existing building be paid out if there were a fire
    and resulting insurance claim? Note that the code gets very building-specific. This presentation will give you
    an indication of where you need to investigate for yourself, but we usually cannot give advice specific to individual buildings.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Jennifer Hoyt, Chief Fire Protection Engineer with the State Fire Marshall’s Office since 2014. The State Fire Marshall can evaluate your building on-site. They can compare what your local fire department is requiring against the code to give an expert (and definitive) opinion. This is a connection you need to have.

    Part II: Member Choice TBA

    We’re holding this slot for educational content requested by members. What questions have you had lately? Know someone who would make a great speaker without a sales pitch? Email us at hello@masslandlords.net.

    Topic will be decided and announced shortly based on your suggestions.

    13 Center St, Chicopee, MA 01013, USA

    Part I: Hoarding

    Hoarding occurs in a variety of circumstances and conditions, and in its worst form can
    destroy a rental property
    far in excess of any security deposit or civil lawsuit. It can also destroy the lives of those impacted, and in some cases,
    the lives of domestic or other animals. There is no known cure for this behavior, so what’s a landlord to do?

    Well fortunately there is a process to approach a renter about accumulation, to enforce
    code, and to point your renter to the help they need. This is “special situation” training so you can learn now
    and be proactive if and when it ever comes up in your business.

    Part I: Member Choice TBA
