  • SWCLA Virtual Meeting Mon Oct 4: Landlords Helping Landlords: A General Question / Answer / Relevant Experience Session
    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    10/04/2021

    Because of the short time between our September meeting and this, our October meeting, it was difficult to find an appropriate speaker and an interesting topic. Our Landlords Helping Landlords sessions, however, bring out very interesting topics and experiences. If you sign-on, you will not be disappointed.

    Being optimistic, it’s possible that we might be able to meet in person for our November meeting. It’s been over a year since we’ve met in person. One thought is that our first in-person meeting after such a long hiatus ought to kind of a low-key celebration devoted only to socializing; that is to say no formal agenda accompanied by soft drinks, snacks, and pizza. There might still be COVID issues to be concerned about, but we want to hear from you. What are your thoughts? Please send an email to ronbernard@icloud.com.

    PLEASE NOTE: We had planned to hold this meeting, in person. However, there still is uncertainty in the proliferation of the Delta Coronavirus. For planning purposes, we could not be sure that our meeting space at the Southbridge Community Center would be open. Additionally, we are not sure as to how many colleagues are willing to attend in person. Let’s talk about this in our October Zoom session.

    All SWCLA members whose dues are up to date will be sent a link to the meeting via email on the day of the meeting.

Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

    moderate networking time.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Oct 13: Deleading Overview
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    10/13/2021

    Landlords cannot turn away households with children because of lead, but children cannot live around lead hazards. We must delead! So what must we do, exactly? This presentation is fully updated to reflect changes to the lead law since 2017. We will teach the basics of lead remediation:

    • Why lead is hazardous
    • Where we find lead
    • Deleading methods
    • Letters of interim control
    • Certificates of Deleading Compliance
    • How to delead with renters still in the unit
    • What to say when a renter informs you they have a baby on the way (hint: delead, don’t discriminate)
    • Tax credits and grant funding

    This is not a moderate risk deleader training. Attendees will learn about the deleading
    training that is available (typically, 12 hours). Attendees will leave better prepared to either take the deleader training course or hire a licensed deleader contractor.

Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors. Doug also oversees the RentHelper spin-off, which is expanding access to electronic banking for those of us who are unbanked or underbanked. Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating. Doug holds a Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Thu Oct 14: Sanitary Code
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    10/14/2021

    The state sanitary code defines what every apartment in Massachusetts must do and be. Unlike the building code, which is usually inspected only at time of permit completion,
    the state sanitary code applies in all rentals all the time, and can be inspected at any time. Are your units compliant?

    Few units are fully compliant. We’ll review the code in easy-to-understand detail and help you get a sense of where you may need to make repairs or improvements.

    The state sanitary code is your biggest liability in a nonpayment situation, where a renter is being taken to court. They will be
    able to counterclaim based on the condition of the apartment. If you anticipate having any kind of conflict resolution process
    with a renter, it’s critical that your apartment is fully up to code and your position is one of blamelessness.

    Note that this presentation is slightly longer than the standard one hour. There will be no business update.

    Your problem or theirs? The state sanitary code holds occupants responsible for some things, and landlords responsible for most everything else
