March 2017: The Free Rent Trick, Renovations & Legal Due Diligence

On March 8th 2017, WPOA gathered to address legal due diligence, renovations and the infamous 'free rent trick'.

February 2017

Renovations: George Valeri worked for 4 years to take a run-down dump and turn it into a beautiful 10 room rooming house. We got invaluable advice from an experienced pro on how to renovate with class on a budget. Click the picture to watch the video!

Avoiding The Free Rent Trick: Doug Quattrochi taught us how not to get suckered by the free rent trick. Protect yourself from the tenant from hell and learn about MassLandlords’ bill filed for the 2016-2017 session to see if we can eliminate this “free rent trick”.

Legal Due Diligence: Michelle Kasabula dove into legal due diligence, i.e. titles and purchase and sale conditions. Most of the time was spent on the legal aspects of closing on a new investment property. Is the purchase and sale watertight? Are your titles clear? Are the leases with existing tenants legal? In particular, we examined last month’s suggestion about short notice-to-quit. And Michele also addressed piercing LLC’s. Note that this presentation is a continuation of February's presentation.

"Many Worcester members were invited to George's open house when renovations were complete. George was proud of his work, and I told him we were proud to have him as a member."- Doug Quattrochi
