    Statewide Virtual Meeting Wed June 1: Cash for Keys, An Alternative to Eviction

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    06/01/2022

    This presentation will teach how to conduct a mutual release with relocation assistance payment, sometimes called “cash for keys.” We will discuss:

    • Brief history (going back to the 2008 collapse).
    • General procedure.
    • Common terms and conditions in a mutual release.
    • How much to offer? Going rates from real experience.
    • Negotiation tips for bad situations.
    • Pros and cons from both a renter advocacy and landlord advocacy perspective.

    Attendees will leave knowing whether and how to offer relocation assistance to a renter.

    Part of this 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.

    Part of 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.

Doug has been instrumental in advancing democratic governance mechanisms, including score voting for policy priorities and a staggered and democratically elected Board of Directors.

Prior to MassLandlords, Doug held leadership roles in various Massachusetts startups, two of which are still operating.

    Webinar June 2: Tenant Screening and Rental Applications

    12:00 PM-1:00 PM
    06/02/2022

    This presentation will focus on foundational skills in tenant screening and rental applications. We will cover:

    • A refresher on the protected classes and avoiding discrimination,
    • Creating your own rental application, or using MassLandlords’,
    • Evaluating information presented on an application,
    • Checking housing history, credit reports and criminal records,
    • Using the applicant qualifier to select the likeliest most successful applicant while still providing equal housing opportunity.

    Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to use the MassLandlords rental application and applicant qualifier (or how to develop your own), how to access third party services to verify information presented, and how to rent for success.

    Southbridge Mon Jun 6: HUD VASH

    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    06/06/2022
    Southbridge Community Center (aka Casaubon Senior Center)
    153 Chestnut St, Southbridge, MA 01550, USA

    Our June speaker will be Jordan Klebanow, Central Mass HUD-VASH Supervisor. Jordan will be talking about HUD VASH, a program that supports Veterans in and around Worcester County.

    HUD VASH marries a traditional Housing and Urban Development rental subsidy with VA funded supportive services. The rental subsidy operates like any other – the landlord enters into a partnership with a housing authority in which the housing authority pays at least 70% of the apartment rent, with the veteran responsible for the remaining 30%. It’s then the team at HUD VASH’s job to make sure the vet is accessing sources of income, mental and physical health care, transportation, and has everything they need to live comfortably.

    HUD VASH currently works with many local landlords and are actively cultivating relationships with new landlords as they grow their team and house more veterans.

    Once again, we will be trying to have a hybrid meeting, that is, both in person and Zoom. If you attend in person, wearing a mask will be up to individual discretion.

    Pizza and soft drinks will be available during our social hour.

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

    Whether or not you choose to attend in person, please be safe.

    Free Public Virtual Meeting Wed June 8: Feedback Session for Software to Rent by the Room Compliantly

    5:00 PM-7:00 PM
    06/08/2022

    This presentation will focus on RentOptimum, new software developed by WinOptimum.com and longtime MassLandlords member Alex Narinsky. The platform combines Alex’s experience with Airbnb and VRBO in the Boston metropolitan area. Alex pivoted his rental business to concentrate on long-term apartment shares, in some cases room-by-room rentals. We will review:

    • Reasons why “apartment sharing” is in demand like never before.
    • The policy framework in towns that regulate renting by the room and apartment sharing including Boston, Worcester, Newton, Arlington, Cambridge and more.
    • Renovations landlords can make to increase the availability of rooms for rent.
    • Is it a lodging house?
    • Do I sign joint and several or separate agreements?
    • How RentOptimum can help you manage longer-term room rentals.

    Attendees will leave having seen Alex’s software and given feedback. Attendees who subsequently try RentOptimum and give Alex feedback will have their service charges eliminated for one year. There is no expectation or requirement that anyone use the software. MassLandlords receives no affiliate commission for promoting RentOptimum. There is no sales pitch in terms of pricing or hidden conditions, Alex is just looking for people to try his platform and give feedback.
