"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."

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Mar 3: Lead and Healthy Homes Resources and Grants
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    03/03/2021

    At this event we will share the various resources and grants available to delead your apartments and make other healthy home improvements. These programs are state and federally funded, and are administered locally by Massachusetts municipalities. We will have experts from different cities share how the programs work. This presentation will be relevant for owners in many towns and cities. The basic program requirements are more or less the same in each participating municipality. You will learn the names of the programs to follow up locally to see what is available for your properties.

    We will share opportunities to address:

    • Lead poisoning, which is up during the pandemic
    • Leaky pipes, which are a source of mold and other pathogens
    • Asbestos
    • Older electrical
    • Missing handrails, and
    • Asthma triggers including carpets and rodents.

    This presentation will not be a deleader training course. We will be reviewing the funding mechanisms available to help you hire a licensed deleader or make other healthy home improvements.

  • Virtual Meeting Thu Mar 11: Compliant Tenant Screening and Leasing
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    03/11/2021

    This presentation will start off with a reminder of the lesson many of us have learned the hard way: It’s better to have a vacant apartment than the wrong tenant. But what is the right tenant? We can’t rely on “gut instinct!” We need to be objective and analytical.

    We will review the pitfalls that will lead you to make economically and legally questionable decisions: not accommodating disabilities, operating without a written screening policy, and having vague or inconsistent grounds for rejection.

    Virgilio Property Management have kindly offered to screenshare their screening policy and also show the rental application they have developed. This presentation will be suitable for both large and small landlords. Finally, we will review the tools of the trade, including third party credit scores and landlord references.

    This will be a rare glimpse into the internal processes of a large landlord. Examples and stories of past successes and learning opportunities will be shared.

    Virgilio Property Management will be Sharing their Rental Application and Procedures

Along with Zach Virgilio, Greg is a hands-on landlord who practices everything from tenant screening to emergency maintenance.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tues Mar 16: RAFT (How to Apply on behalf of Renters)
    5:00 PM
    03/16/2021

    This presentation will review the Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT) “Owner Door”. Since late fall 2020, owners have been able to apply for RAFT on behalf of our renters. This application process will become no less important as the economic fallout from the pandemic saturates the arts, entertainment, and services. Federal funding is arriving in even greater amounts than before. Get up to $10,000 for eligible renters to pay rent.

    We will start with a review of how the RAFT program works:

    • Is my renter eligible?
    • Does it matter if they are undocumented?
    • How long does it take?
    • Where do I apply?

    We will then review step-by-step the RAFT application for a major regional administrator:

    • Acceptable forms of renter authorization
    • Identification
    • Proof of income or lack thereof
    • Proof of tenancy
    • Proof of ownership

    Attendees will leave knowing how to apply for RAFT on behalf of a renter and where to get started.

    This presentation will be given by Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords, Inc. Doug was a founding member of MassLandlords in 2013. He became the association’s first Executive Director under new bylaws in 2014. Since then, he has scaled the organization from a core of 160 members in Worcester to approximately 2,000 dues paying businesses from Pittsfield to the Cape, and from an all-volunteer team to approximately 20 full and part-time staff plus 50 volunteers. 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.

    Pricing

    Open to the public. Membership is not required, but advance registration is required!

    The course is the same price as usual, because our estimate of shipping and handling on a box of course materials is equal to our historic cost per person of catering.
