Live webinars and webinar recordings from MassLandlords events serve as an essential resource for members and the public seeking information about renting and property ownership.
In 2020, since the COVID-19 pandemic and response, and subsequent limitations on in-person gatherings, our webinars and webinar recordings have become more important. They provide landlords with important information pertaining to their businesses, and do so in a safe, pandemic-compliant way.
A range of webinar recordings are available on the MassLandlords website, each containing pertinent information in an easy-to-access format with slides presented at the live events.
A range of webinar topics
MassLandlords webinar recordings cover topics such as rental assistance programs, tenant screening, buying and selling occupied rental property, regulations around emotional support animals, eviction moratorium information, and more.

We are always in the process of producing new webinars that address issues pertinent to current events, seasonal considerations, and laws and policies. New and recent webinar topics offered include an overview of our proposed fair and equal housing guarantee via surety bonds, and a presentation of the MassLandlords Individual Claims Council.
Also, a webinar, titled “Oppose Rent Cancellation and Hear Our Alternative,” is available for free and is open to the public.
Valuable info from seasoned experts
These webinars are hosted by professionals engaged in landlord-related services, such as realtors, property managers, attorneys and housing advocates, among others.
A May 20 webinar on tenant screening was presented by Jeremy Durrin, an experienced background screener and president of Background Examine in Westhampton. In August, H. John Fisher, a seasoned rental property owner and author of the landlord textbook Property Management Manual for Massachusetts Rental Owners, presented a webinar on the rental assistance application process for RAFT and ERMA. Attorney Jordana Roubicek Greenman, of Watertown, led an eviction moratorium update webinar.
An ongoing resource
Unless provided for free in special circumstances, MassLandlords webinar recordings are available for a nominal fee: $3 for members and $6 for non-members (paid via credit card online). This is the same fee MassLandlords charges to attend the live webinar in real time.
Once you have purchased access to a webinar recording, you may revisit it repeatedly at any time as a valuable resource for your business.
Webinar recordings for a discount are just one of a long list of benefits available to members.
