"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
    04/03/2019
    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.

    Worcester Wed 4/10: Emotional Support Animals

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    04/10/2019
    Worcester Technical High School
    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    We’ve changed this meeting from “Bubble and Ad Roast” to suit speaker availability and member interest.

    Part I: Technology Tips

    We’re going to start with two brief member presentations on software and washing machines. We have a new piece of software you may want to know about.
    We’re also going to be reviewing the latest hardware you should know about if you have a washing machine or hookups in your units.

    Part II: Main Presentation: Emotional Support Animals

    We’ve reordered this meeting to address a topic that has immediate implications for a lot of owners and managers:
    the rise of the $80 emotional support animal. We want to start by explaining the legitimate use cases for emotional support animals,
    cover the discrimination law that protects these use cases, and talk about the practical implications of a public policy where
    disabilities remain secret. Are they unverifiable? No, and we’ll be covering the “verification of disability” process that owners
    and managers should follow. Learn to fairly differentiate between legitimate emotional support animals and fake ones.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Attorney Carl Lindley, Jr. Attorney Lindley is a partner at Farber and Lindley, LLC.
    He has been practicing law in Massachusetts for 14 years and is admitted to practice before the United States District Court and
    United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. He is also a landlord in Worcester County,
    a licensed real estate broker and licensed to complete moderate risk de-leading on his own properties.
