"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 May 5: Section 8 Tutorial, SNO Mass
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    05/05/2021

    Section 8 Tutorial

    This part of the presentation will give attendees a comprehensive overview of the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). We will cover:

    • What to say when an applicant asks, “Do you take Section 8?”
    • Why and to what extent Massachusetts landlords must participate
    • How to deal with inspections
    • How to screen a Section 8 applicant
    • Why your insurance can’t stop you renting to Section 8
    • and more!

    Permanent rental subsidies like the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) can be great programs to participate in. But they can be tough
    on the unprepared landlord: your first Section 8 applicant may expose weaknesses in your non-discriminatory tenant screening process, sanitary code compliance, or other aspects of your business!

    Attendees will leave with knowledge of the program, confidence in working with Section 8 applicants, and pro tips for navigating the process with flying colors.

    SNO Mass

    This part of the presentation will explain Seeking Neighborhood Opportunity (SNO) Massachusetts, a rental subsidy that started in Fall 2020. This rental subsidy builds on the Section 8 program. SNO Mass corrects many of Section 8’s weaknesses to build a powerful and long-term partnership between landlords and families. We will cover:

    • How SNO Massachusetts helps families obtain access to good school districts
    • Which districts are eligible (use the SNO Mass Locator Tool)
    • Why the program offers two years more support than Section 8
    • How much of the move-in monies may be covered
    • and more!

    SNO Mass is interesting for those of us with large units. Typically large units are used in the college market, which turns over frequently. Participating in SNO could fill your unit without any vacancy turnover for ten or more years. (This is a new program and we don’t have data on actual turnover, but initial results confirm that SNO Mass renters stay longer than the average tenancy of 18 months.) Find out if any of your properties may be eligible using the SNO Mass Locator Tool.

    Attendees will leave knowing whether their properties are in a SNO Mass area, why participation is highly desirable, and how to get started.

    Part of the SNO Mass presentation will be given by Kristin Haas. Kristin is Planning and Implementation Specialist at the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.

    Part of the SNO Mass presentation will be given by Brendan Goodwin. Brendan is Director, Division of Rental Assistance at the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Community Development.

    The Section 8 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.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tues May 18: Fair Housing Act, Avoid Fines
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    05/18/2021

    This presentation will give an overview of the federal Fair
    Housing Act
    . First passed in April 1968 and since amended,
    the Titles VIII through IX of the Civil Rights Act of 1968 are commonly
    known as the Fair Housing
    Act. This landmark US law prohibits discrimination during the
    sale, rental, and financing of housing because of someone’s
    membership in a protected class.

    We will review the federal protected classes and describe how
    Massachusetts law builds on and expands these protected classes. We
    will look at behaviors landlords may engage in that would put us at
    risk of violating the Fair Housing Act, including:

    • Declining rental applications without business justification,
    • Ghosting,
    • Steering, and
    • Disparate impact.

    In Massachusetts, the Fair Housing Act is enforced by testers
    looking for discriminatory actions, whether intentional or
    unintentional. The fine for the first offense is $10,000 and increases for subsequent offenses.

    Attendees will leave knowing how to comply with the Fair Housing
    Act, which aspects of their rental operations may need to be
    revised, and how to ensure equal housing opportunity for all.
