"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."

    Cambridge & Statewide Virtual Meeting Tues Oct 20: Cash for Keys Alternative to Eviction

    5:10 PM-7:00 PM
    10/20/2020

    This event will teach attendees the legal alternative to filing for eviction and waiting for a court hearing: the “cash for keys” mutual release.

    A variety of factors make “cash for keys” arrangements desirable from an owner/manager point of view:

    • Rent arrears for many of us are into the tens of thousands of dollars;
    • The state legislature won’t enact a housing guarantee because reasons;
    • The Governor’s administration isn’t setting aside enough money to pay for the arrears;
    • The judicial branch is working hard but ultimately can only do so much with a nine month backlog.

    Is it time to cut your losses and move on? This presentation will review:

    • Have cash for keys been allowed under the MA eviction moratorium? (Yes, we’ll review the case law)
    • What does a properly structured cash for keys agreement look like?
    • What is best practice for going forward given the state of the Massachusetts and CDC moratoriums.
    • What is the benefit of attempting a cash for keys mediated move-out, compared to waiting for a court date.
    • What is the likelihood of success of trying to game the system by filing a no-fault, no cause eviction when rent arrears are owed? (Hint: not good.)
    • What is best practice for starting the conversation with a renter who is long-term unstable in their current housing?

    Part of the presentation will be given by Peter Vickery of Bobrowski

    (representing landlords in Housing Court) and discrimination defense (representing business owners in the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination).
    He graduated from Oxford University (Jesus College) with a BA in Modern History; obtained his Post-Graduate Diploma in Law from the University of the
    West of England in Bristol; his JD from Boston University School of Law; and his Masters in Public Policy & Administration from the University of Massachusetts,
    Amherst. Attorney Vickery served one term on the Governor’s Council (the elected 8-member body that approves or vetoes the governor’s choice of judges in Massachusetts) and on the State Ballot Law Commission. As Legislative Affairs Counsel for MassLandlords he drafts bills, bill summaries, and testimony in the area of housing law,
    and writes amicus briefs in cases that have strategic significance for rental-property owners.

    Part of the presentation will be given by Peter Shapiro. A
    graduate of MIT’s Master’s Program in City Planning, Peter founded
    and directed Mediation For Results, a Program at Just-A-Start
    Corporation, a nonprofit in Cambridge, Massachusetts. From 1990 to
    2015, Peter and his team provided landlord counseling, mediation and
    homelessness prevention, and led landlord support groups across
    Metro Boston. Peter now provides Helpline and Member services for
