March 2017: Evictions, Fire Prevention & 1031 Exchanges

Our own Executive Director, Doug Quattrochi, an experienced landlord himself, gave a brief overview of the eviction process. We learned about tenant relations, serving notices, housing court and more.

We were proud to welcome Waltham Fire Prevention Expert, Lieutenant Scott Perry to talk to us about fire safety and prevention. We learned the best ways to protect our investment properties from the smoke, water and fire damage that comes along with a building fire. Knowing how to protect your properties and your tenants is a vital part of being a successful landlord. What we learned from Lt. Perry could save a life!

We were also excited to have 1031 Exchange Advisor, Chris Brown from Edmund and Wheeler Inc. join us to discuss 1031 exchanges. He covered topics like: the history of Section 1031, how a 1031 Exchange works, what the important dates exchangers need to be aware of, who is involved with a 1031 Exchange, and what the various types of exchanges are there that can be utilized. If you’re a small property owner who lives in a multi-family home or operates a rental business without hired management, 1031 exchange strategies may help you to defer significant tax liabilities while discovering ways to re-allocate your resources on a tax deferred basis.

“The vast majority of our clients have similar characteristics as your membership. Small property owners who live in multi-family homes or operate a rental business without hired management. In many cases, these owners have been active for many years, own low basis / highly appreciated assets and aren’t familiar with 1031 exchange strategies that may help them defer significant tax liabilities while discovering ways to re-allocate their resources on a tax deferred basis.”Chris Brown, 1031 Exchange Advisor
