"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."

    Newton Wed 4/3: Tenant Screening: How and What to Look For

    6:00 PM-9:00 PM
    Charles River Properties
    382 Watertown St, Newton, MA 02458, USA

    As we enter the spring rental market, it’s time to remind ourselves of the importance of careful tenant selection to our bottom line.
    In this month’s meeting we’ll be covering tenant screening with
    three in-depth looks from three sets of speakers. The first two segments will be “how” and the third will be
    “what” to look for.

    Part I: Tenant Screening Refresher

    We’ll start by reviewing the list of protected classes and equal housing opportunity laws. Yes, you can
    reject the rental application of someone who’s a member of a protected class.
    But no, you can’t do so because of their being in that protected class.
    We’ll cover federal and state protected classes, steering, and testing. We’ll make sure everyone leaves the room
    understanding their obligations to ensure equal housing opportunity for all.

    We’ll then cover the “big three” tenant screening checks that landlords can pay for. These are in addition
    to the detective work we can do on our own. We’ll explain how credit scores work, one easy source of criminal data,
    and one free way to check eviction records.

    This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff.

    Part II: Criminal Records In-Depth

    Criminal records have become both under-utilized and overly harsh in screening out rental applicants. We’ll explain
    which kinds of data sources exist, what the data tells us or doesn’t tell us about an applicant, and why we need to review
    criminal records on a case-by-case basis. Arrests and misdemeanors may not be housing relevant.

    This part of the presentation will be a moderated discussion between staff and
    Jeremy Durrin, president of Background Examine.

    Part III: Landlord Q&A on Screening

    We’ll be putting three regular audience members in front of the room to discuss what they look for once they have
    a credit, criminal, and eviction history. We’ll also be asking them about checking income, references, cosigners, residence history,
    and many other factors.
