  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Mar 2: Insurance Underwriting and Discounting
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    03/02/2022

    Insurance is one of the “big three” expenses alongside mortgage and
    real estate taxes, but do you know what sets your costs? This presentation will focus on discounts and endorsements and how these affect pricing for property insurance, general liability, one to three families, four units, and more than four. Factors include:

    • Your credit
    • Shape of the property
    • Year built
    • Bundling products like auto, umbrella
    • Many other factors we will discuss

    We will be discussing homeowners policies, business owners policies, commercial package policies, and commercial lines. Attendees will leave better prepared to ask about and manage premiums and endorsements.

    This event will be a radio style interview between Wayne
    Tolley
    of Hadsel Insurance and Doug Quattrochi, Executive
    Director, MassLandlords. Wayne has been with Hadsel Insurance Agency
    for over 22 years. He is the Operations Manager, a licensed agent
    and a notary public. He has been a member of the
    Northern Worcester County Landlord Association since 2018 and is
    an experienced presenter. Hadsel Insurance Agency was
    started 40 years ago in Medford, MA by Fran Hadsel. She is still
    the active owner.

    Patrick Sullivan of Obtainable Sobriety, also a MassLandlords Director, will moderate networking time.
    You can volunteer for a future event.

    Networking time will be moderated by Patrick
    Sullivan
    . Patrick has been an avid landlord since 2007 primarily
    focusing on multi families in the greater Worcester area. Having
    worked in high level IT his whole life he looks at things from a
    different perspective which he applies to real estate. He
    became a Real Estate agent in 2015 and now primarily focuses on
    Sober living facilities for people recently out of drug and alcohol
    treatment centers. Patrick sits on the statewide MassLandlords Board of Directors.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed Mar 9: Review of the State Sanitary Code
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    03/09/2022

    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 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

    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 a detailed explanations.” -Larry

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

    “Thanks to you Doug, and all who worked on this presentation, as it is obvious that a lot went into it, as you said. It was much to digest, but your presentation of the information, and especially your opinions throughout, aided the translation. Also, your answers to member’s questions afterward, regarding recommendations, were most helpful. Always a pleasure.” -Liz

    This presentation will review powers of attorney in-depth. What would happen if you or a loved one were to lose the ability to run the rental business? A power of attorney may be needed at any stage of life, but typically these are end-of-life or estate planning tools. Attendees will learn:

    • How a conservatorship can override an invalid power of attorney.
    • How to prepare to hand over a rental operation.
    • Things to look for when taking over a rental operation.
    • Springing vs. immediate power of attorney.
    • Powers of attorney vs. managers for LLCs.

    We will also cover general organization, including best practices for sharing online passwords with family, budget and financial information, and rental forms.

  • Statewide Virtual Meeting Tue March 15: Going Full-Time: Panel Discussion with Successful Real Estate Operators
    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    03/15/2022

    We’ll have a panel discussion with several landlords who have
    successfully quit their 9-to-5 to focus full-time
    on rental real estate. We will cover:

    • What did you do before going full-time?
    • How did you decide you were ready to make a change?
    • What do you wish you did differently?
    • What did you make sure you had in place?
    • How did you get enough units to be sustainable?
    • And much more.

    If you are deciding whether to go full-time, this will
    be priceless experience from real Massachusetts
    housing providers. We can’t answer your question for you about whether to go full time, but you will have information you’d be hard pressed to find by any other source.

    Attendees will leave knowing what others have been through, how to learn from their mistakes (if any), and how to succeed in whatever path you may choose for yourself.

  • Webinar March 25: Rent Control: Theory, History, and Talking Points for Massachusetts
    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    03/25/2022

    This policy presentation will examine the theory behind rent control, the history of rent control in Massachusetts, and the reasons why we shouldn’t have rent control in Massachusetts (or indeed anywhere in the US).

    We will study:

    • Legitimate motivations to correct injustice in modern housing markets.
    • Current bill text proposed for Massachusetts.
    • First, second, and third generation schemes for price controls.
    • Economic data from Massachusetts, Finland, and other studies.
    • Evidence of housing shortage, disparate impact under rent control.
    • Ways to help others understand rent control and the alternatives.

    Attendees will leave knowing more about the history of rent control in the commonwealth, as well as how best to oppose rent control when speaking with legislators or even advocates.

    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 a detailed explanations.” -Larry

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

    “Thanks to you Doug, and all who worked on this presentation, as it is obvious that a lot went into it, as you said. It was much to digest, but your presentation of the information, and especially your opinions throughout, aided the translation. Also, your answers to member’s questions afterward, regarding recommendations, were most helpful. Always a pleasure.” -Liz
