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.
