  • Waltham Virtual Meeting Wed May 6: Use Tech to Be a Long-Distance (Socially Distanced) DIY Landlord
    6:30 PM-8:00 PM
    05/06/2020

    Technology can save time, reduce risk, and earn higher rents by shutting off the water, giving renters keyless entry, and
    keeping vandals away
    all without us having to be there. Why would you ever attempt to manage a property without a little remote assistance?
    Come see what easy and affordable steps you can take to modernize your units, eliminate travel time,
    and get a higher return on your investment.

    Use-cases we will be considering:

    • Establishing network connections at a property with no office
    • Rekeying locks
    • Remotely controlling tenants and contractor access
    • Controlling / Reducing water, heat, or electrical expenses
    • Freeze protection
    • Leak detection
    • Security cameras and break-in deterrence

    We will be going over smart thermostats, water leak detection and shutoff, smart locks, door and window sensors, video monitoring, and more.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Charles Hadsell, MassLandlords member, CEO at ePropertyCare, and experienced MassLandlords presenter.

  • Worcester Virtual Meeting Wed May 13: eFiling Essential Evictions in Housing Court
    6:30 PM-8:00 PM
    05/13/2020

    New May 7: We will pivot the topic to focus primarily on Housing Court Standing Order 5-20, which
    implements the Eviction Moratorium passed April 20:

    • What are Housing Court Standing Orders?
    • What does Standing Order 5-20 say?
    • Which evictions may not be filed or advanced?
    • What might constitute an essential eviction that can still be filed?
    • If one has a case that should still be filed:
      • Where does one go?
      • What is the required Affidavit of Compliance?
      • What is the required Affidavit for Cause?
    • “Normally I would file ‘no fault’.” What kind of evidence do I need to gather?
    • Is it a good idea to hire an attorney? Spoiler alert: yes.

    This will be a procedural presentation. We will not be giving advice particular to your situation.
    We will not discuss whether the eviction moratorium should have passed, or how some are trying to cope with it. Note that
    eFiling in the Housing Court became mandatory for attorneys and parties represented by attorneys
    effective January 27, 2020, not a moment too soon for a time when in-person communication may be dangerous. You can still file a limited number of cases,
    but the rules have changed dramatically for which cases may be filed and how.

  • Cambridge Virtual Meeting Tues May 19: Credit Reporting Under the Eviction Moratorium
    6:10 PM-8:00 PM
    05/19/2020

    If your renters don’t pay, that can impact their credit even if you can’t file in court. Attendees of this presentation will leave understanding how
    credit scores account for rental history and how to report a renter’s good or bad history for credit purposes.

    We’ll begin by reviewing the sources of reliable consumer credit data, including the “big three.” Then we’ll explain the normal market
    context in which credit information is collected and used to qualify consumers for credit, including revolving balance credit cards, car loans, and housing.
    While we’re here, we’ll share some quick pointers on screening renter credit scores, evaluating histories, and issuing rejections where credit
    had an adverse impact.

    We’ll review in detail the Massachusetts eviction moratorium restrictions on credit reporting. In particular, we’ll explain what your renters must do to preserve their credit
    rating during COVID-19 related nonpayment, or conversely, what you can do to report for negative credit if a renter is not paying as agreed. We’ll then review options
    for landlords to start making reports to the “big three” right away.

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

  • Webinar Wed May 20: Tenant Screening Overview
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    05/20/2020

    Tenant screening skills are more important than ever now that we have an eviction moratorium. If you cannot screen adequately, you may be better off
    leaving your units vacant. We will discuss increasing pass/fail thresholds on written applicant qualifiers, and using such qualifiers before you list a unit
    to evaluate whether to list at all.

    We will then explain how to check credit, criminal, and eviction history. Which sources can we check? What do the reports mean?
    This segment will review all of these factors, as well as give a comprehensive
    look at discrimination protections. We’ll show you how to protect your assets while also giving equal housing opportunity to all.

    Under fair housing in particular, we will cover age discrimination and emotional support animals. Attendees will learn when you can take a photo ID
    and how to verify requests for reasonable accommodation.
