"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."

    Southbridge Virtual Meeting Mon Feb 1: The Tenant’s Right of First Refusal

    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    02/01/2021

    A tenant’s right of first refusal means that when a landlord wants to sell a rented property the tenants must first be informed and then given the right to purchase the property before it can be sold to any other party.

    A bill from the Massachusetts state legislature enacting this concept into law was vetoed by Governor Baker in mid-January; the issue therefore is moot – at least for now. However, tenant’s rights advocates will probably be working to put this on the agenda for the new legislative session.

    That being the case, it will be helpful for all of us to have the concept explained in detail from a legal standpoint, the impact such legislation might have on the small-time landlord, and the ripple effects such a law might have on the affordable housing market and the real estate industry in general.

    Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman has a deep knowledge of housing court procedures and is well-respected for aggressively advocating for clients’ goals. In addition to being a mentor for landlord / tenant law, she is member of both the Real Estate Council for the Mass. Bar Association and the Real Estate Bar Association for whom she is a frequent speaker. Attorney Greenman has been awarded “Rising Star” designation in Super Lawyers magazine, is a columnist for Massachusetts Lawyers Journal and Real Estate Bar Association News, and regularly leads legal seminars for first-time homebuyers and small property owners.

    PLEASE NOTE: Given the current COVID-19 precautions, we have decided to hold our January, February, and March meetings via ZOOM. Following our March meeting, we will reassess the pandemic situation and decide whether or not it’s safe to go back to meeting in person.

    All members whose dues are up to date will be sent a link to the meeting via email. From that email, all you have to do is click on the link and it will bring you to the meeting.

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Feb 3: Bills for the 192nd Session

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    02/03/2021

    This presentation will be a line-by-line review of selected bill
    text
    MassLandlords intends to file or has filed this 192nd
    legislative session. The two-year session started January 2021.

    We will start by reviewing the Policy Priorities Survey, which sets
    member direction. We will zero in on those priorities we believe
    can best be achieved by legislative means (some priorities can best be achieved
    in other ways). Some bills will not be directly tied to the survey
    and instead will be foundational in nature.

    Most of the presentation will be focused on a select set of
    bills. We will review line-by-line the purpose and meaning. As we
    go, we will teach some of the requirements of legislative drafting.

    Attendees of this presentation will leave with a deeper
    understanding of how bills are drafted, which bills we have filed
    and why, and how future progress can be made in the legislature.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Peter Vickery of Bobrowski
    & Vickery, LLC. Attorney Vickery practices law in Western Massachusetts where he focuses on landlord-tenant law
    (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.

    The networking portion of this meeting will be hosted by Dana Fogg. Dana Fogg started his rental business in 1994 with his first Multifamily in Watertown. Since then, Dana and his wife have purchased and sold rental properties around the Metro West area. They now have 9 Units in Watertown and Marlborough. Dana is the Vice President of the Metro West Property Owners Association.

    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Feb 10: Indoor Air Quality

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    02/10/2021

    This presentation will be all about indoor air quality, meaning “is the air in our apartment safe to breathe long-term?” You may be surprised by what the science says. This presentation will examine:

    • Why indoor air quality matters to us and our renters
    • Common causes of poor indoor air quality
      • Environmental tobacco smoke
      • Pests
      • Excess moisture/dampness/mold
      • Volatile organic chemicals (VOC)
      • Carpets
      • Gas stoves
      • Radon
    • Steps proactive landlords can take to create healthier homes for our residents

    This presentation will not go into legal specifics on which landlords have been sued for indoor air quality and what the penalty was. You can take it from us that this is a growing exposure for housing providers.

    Monitoring for indoor air quality is fun! Invisible substances become visibly measurable with the right tools. Small changes in the way we operate can make big improvements in how we think, feel, and breathe in our homes.

    professor david turcotte
    Professor David Turcotte, University of Massachusetts Lowell

    Part of this presentation will be given by Professor Dave Turcotte, Sc.D., research professor, director, and principal investigator at the New England Consortium at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Lowell Healthy Homes Program. Professor Turcotte researches healthy homes and sustainable housing. He is currently studying HEPA filters as intervention for renters with asthma and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He has authored dozens of papers and given many more presentations on indoor air quality, particularly as it applies to rental housing.

    The networking portion of this meeting will be hosted by Rich Merlino. Rich has managed apartments since 2003 and prides himself on his mostly plagiarized systemization of each aspect of property management. He is a member of the MassLandlords Board of Directors.

    • Intro to Smart Building Technology for landlords
    • Smart Locks / Access Control
    • Water Protection
    • Temperature Control
    • Video
    • Benefits
    • How to Implement

    This presentation will be given by Charles Hadsell.Charles Hadsell is the co-founder / CEO of ePropertyCare, a smart building technology provider for landlords, property managers and developers. ePropertyCare’s platform operates over the cellular network (so no WiFi is required) and allows landlords to remotely control door locks, detect HVAC issues, detect water leaks/running toilets, video, and more. His solutions reduce costs for insurance, utilities, and repairs & maintenance. They can also protect a building from damage during the cold Boston winters and from tenant misuse.

    Charles spent 15 years in the semiconductor world working at Texas Instruments and Analog Devices. Charles’ teams have literally built the electronics that go into many of the IoT devices out there. Charles graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Electrical Engineering. Charles is a multi-state landlord and lives in Somerville with his wife and 3 children.
