"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."

    Waltham Wed Feb 5: How to Take a Security Deposit

    6:00 PM-7:50 PM
    02/05/2020
    The La Cava Center at Bentley University, Third Floor
    175 Forest Street , Waltham, MA 02452, United States

    Security deposits are one of the primary liabilities for Massachusetts landlords. If you make a paperwork mistake,
    you might owe your renter three times the amount of the deposit plus attorney’s fees. And
    what a lot of paperwork there is! First receipt, second receipt, annual receipt, conditions statement, withholding receipt,
    signed under the pains and penalties of perjury… Should you even bother?

    Well yes, you can successfully take a security deposit.
    We’ll show you how!

    We’ll be reviewing the law, the forms you need, and some concrete examples where landlords have made mistakes
    and paid for renter damage themselves.

    This presentation will be given by MassLandlords staff.

    You’ll be ready to take a fully compliant security deposit after this training
    This security deposit statement cost the landlord loads. We’ll show you why.

    Marlborough Tue 2/11: Lead Paint and Deleading with Mary Chabot

    6:30 PM-7:15 PM
    02/11/2020
    Marlborough Fish and Game
    1 Muddy Ln, Marlborough, MA 01752, USA

    Deleading is easier than ever, and more important than ever. Changes in 2017
    reduced the cost to landlords, but
    also changed the legal definition of lead poisoning, increasing our liability.

    This segment will give the basics of lead remediation: why lead is hazardous, where we find lead, and
    how to eliminate the hazard. We will review deleading methods, letters of interim control, and certificates of deleading compliance.

    This is not a moderate risk deleader training. Attendees will learn about the DIY deleading
    training that is available (typically, 12 hours), and will also learn about the costs and benefits of hiring professionals.
    Lastly, because this is a landlording event, we will talk about deleading with residents in the unit, how to navigate
    the arrival of children, and how to ensure both you and your renters stay happy and healthy.

    Worcester Wed Feb 12: To Renovate or Not, Tax Escalation Clauses

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    02/12/2020
    Fiddler's Green, Worcester Hibernian Cultural Center
    19 Temple St, Worcester, MA 01604, USA

    Part I: Tax Escalation Clauses

    Leases have the advantage of providing long-term stability for you and your renter.
    But sudden real estate tax increases can destroy a carefully calculated rent and turn a lease upside-down,
    eliminating the net income you were banking on. Is there anything you can do?

    Come learn about tax escalation clauses, which when added prior to a tenancy can give you an emergency
    escape out of a losing lease.

    We’re review the section of the law that applies. Attendees will leave with the exact wording in our “Optional Clauses.” Finally, we’ll have a brief discussion on
    whether
    escalators should be invoked routinely or only in case of emergency.

    Part II: A Landlord Case Study: Does it Make Sense to Renovate Your Rental?

    Renovations can be costly and stressful. Does the reward justify the investment?
    In this featured part of the presentation, we will review actual numbers from a renovation in Fitchburg and look at
    the return on investment. Pictures will be in plentiful supply as we examine what this one owner did, and how they did it.
    Cost containment will feature prominently, as will the change in renter dynamics before and after the renovation.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Brian Lucier of Belaire Property Management. Member input and
    renovation tips are welcome.

    Tax escalation clauses can help prevent a municipality from sending a lease into the red
    qualified opportunity zones map Worcester
