"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."

    Worcester Wed 12/11: Why Your Buildings Haven't Met Fire Code for 30 Years, How to Read MassCourts.org

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    12/11/2019
    Fiddler's Green, Worcester Hibernian Cultural Center
    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: How to Read MassCourts.org

    MassCourts.org is the public record of summary process (aka eviction) and small claims lawsuits in Massachusetts. Landlords can and should use this information
    to help score rental applications, screen tenants, and ensure that every resident of their community will thrive. It’s no good for anyone if the previous for-cause eviction is about
    to be repeated on your property.

    Remember that just because someone appears in the court records
    doesn’t mean they’re going to be a bad renter for your apartment. Court records can exonerate a renter who doesn’t have a landlord reference, particularly if their last
    landlord was a slumlord. It’s easy to see once you know what you’re looking at.

    Attendees will review MassCourts.org docket information, summary process terminology, and dispositions. You will learn how to tell who owed whom, whether the case
    was dismissed, and most importantly, how to verify that the person applying for your apartment is the person listed in the records. Finally we’ll point out where the court records are
    lacking helpful or critical information, and discuss where to go to learn more.

    We will also review some proposed laws that would obfuscate or eliminate this housing-relevant dataset, and the reasons why landlords need to use this data carefully or have it pulled away.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Attorney Carl Lindley of Farber and Lindley.

    Chicopee Thu 12/12: Hoarding, Deleading

    6:00 PM-9:00 PM
    12/12/2019
    Munich Haus
    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.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Heather Burbeck. Heather is a hoarding claims expert at CRDN, an electronics and textile restoration
    company. Heather’s presentation covers the different levels of hoarding, the liability concerns of renting to or insuring a hoarder,
    and how insurers and landlords need to monitor their properties to head off catastrophic losses.

    Part II: Member Choice: Deleading Process and Grants

    Based on local member input, we will be covering the deleading process. What does lead paint look like? How do children get poisoned?
    What is the Massachusetts deleading Catch-22? And what are our options for deleading? Does anyone have money to help defer the costs?

    This presentation will be of interest to large and small landlords. The first part will be basic training, the second part will be an update on deleading grant
    programs open for applications.

    This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff (education) and Nigel D. Greaves, Senior Program Manager,
    Lead Based Paint Hazard Reduction & Healthy Homes, City of Springfield, Office of Housing (funding).
