    Brett Moore and his son Zachary are owners of Molly Maids in Oxford, MA. They will come to share with our membership the services that they provide. They currently work with many landlords in our geography and have for some time turning tenants quickly and spotlessly.

    Most of us use cleaners between tenants, so why not come to see what Molly Maid has to say? They are local, trusted and been around for many years.

    For over 35 years, customers have welcomed the trusted cleaning professionals from locally owned and operated Molly Maid businesses into their homes. Now more than ever, we want to reassure you that our teams strictly adhere to CDC guidelines. Our cleaning procedures are designed to help create a cleaner environment for you and your family. We’ve provided cleaning services to over a million customers and want you to know that you can continue to rely on us to go above and beyond to provide you with a worry-free, top-notch cleaning service every time.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Oct 5: Good Landlording Hygiene: Take Your Real Estate from Stinky to Squeaky Clean
    5:00 PM-6:40 PM
    10/05/2022

    This event will be a discussion anchored to a new set of slides. The intent of this presentation will be to help you manage your rental income stream as a business at any size. This presentation is not a legal compliance review. Instead, we’ll be focusing on business tools and processes. Full- and part-time landlords will find a variety of productivity tips and tricks:

    • How can you guarantee new knowledge always gets put into practice?
    • Where do landlords store important files like rental agreements?
    • How and when should I delegate to new team members? Who can I realistically hire at my size?
    • What should my mental state be when I learn someone has damaged the apartment?
    • And much more.

    We hope these tips will open your eyes to new ways of looking at an old business. And we hope if you have suggestions, you will share them so we can update our slides for future presentations.

    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 2,500 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 Wed Oct 12: Section 8 Tutorial
    5:00 PM-6:40 PM
    10/12/2022

    This 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.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Thu Oct 13: Security Deposits, Last Month’s Rent and Move-in Monies
    5:00 PM-6:13 PM
    10/13/2022

    This presentation will teach how to take move-in monies as a landlord in Massachusetts. We will discuss the four allowable charges:

    • First month’s rent
    • Last month’s rent
    • Security deposit
    • Locks

    Security deposits are one of the primary liabilities for Massachusetts landlords. If you make a paperwork mistake,
    you might owe your renter three times the amount of the deposit plus attorney’s fees! But we’ll show you how to protect your property with a deposit, and how to protect your business with bulletproof compliance.

    We will compare and contrast security deposits with last month’s rent.

    Can you charge a pet deposit? Application fee? Amenity fee? Attend and ask why not.

    Attendees will leave knowing what Massachusetts law requires when taking move-in monies and how to operate with peace of mind.

    New case law will be discussed!

    Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman

    Downtown Boston. Her practice consists of a broad range of real estate-related legal matters,
    including commercial and residential landlord/tenant disputes, condominium association representation,

    has a well-respected reputation for aggressively advocating for her clients’ goals and ensuring beneficial
    outcomes at a reasonable cost. She was among the first attorneys to take legal action in response to the unfunded eviction moratorium and has been working as co-counsel on a pro bono basis with the recent Boston Eviction Moratorium.

    Erin Zamarro of A.A. Zamarro Realty will
    moderate networking time.
    You can volunteer for a future event.

    Networking time for this event will be moderated by Erin

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tue Oct 18: State Sanitary Code from Floor to Ceiling (Updated for Code Changes Oct 12)
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    10/18/2022

    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 starts earlier and ends later than normal. We will take a bio break.

    This presentation has been updated for code changes announced October 12 effective April 2023.

    “This is my second time participating in the sanitary code session, and I still learned something new that we need to address in our building.” -Beatrice

    “Presentation was VERY informative and thorough.” -Carol

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

    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 2,500 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.

    “Doug’s presentation was excellent. He was very clear and provided detailed explanations.” -Larry

    “Doug always holds very informative classes full of substance and Very organized!” -Thomas

    “Your answers to member’s questions were most helpful.” -Liz
