Report Event

This is an encore of our Waltham event, so if you missed it, here is your chance.  Note this is a WEDNESDAY event, not Tuesday, and is at our new location at Compass Tavern.

There are horror stories all over the internet and the REIAs about landlords and sellers being successfully sued for housing discrimination, when both renting and selling, and to make it even worse, the landlord didn’t even think they were in violation!So how do you make sure you are not discriminating, but still protecting your rights?

Join us for an overview and update on fair housing tailored to anyone who sells or rents property in Massachusetts, including an update on the forms of housing discrimination and protected categories, details about the rights of tenants with disabilities, and information about lawful and unlawful rental and sales advertising.  Jamie Williamson, Governor appointed Chairperson of the Board of the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination will be speaking on these topics which are critical to successfully managing your rentals and sales.

You will learn:

  • Whether you can evict a tenant for growing marijuana in their unit
  • When you can turn down a student as tenant
  • How to avoid being sued for housing discrimination, or at least being successfully sued
  • Whether you can decline to sell to or rent to a family with young children when you think you have lead paint
  • What you can say in your advertising, and what will get you in hot water
  • If a tenant or applicant requests a ramp, should you comply?And when?

Compass Tavern provides our venue for free, in the hopes that you will partake of food and drink, and come back as a customer.  So join us for an evening of networking, great information, and enjoy your dinner and drinks while you listen.  Plenty of parking, even with snow mountains!

Reminder of tonight's Worcester Massachusetts Black Diamond event.  The event is at Compass Tavern, 90 Harding St, Worcester MA, networking starts at 6PM, and there is plenty of parking, see you there!
