The course will address changing legal issues that Massachusetts property managers should consider, in light of recent case law, and legislative changes in such areas as the new Medical Marijuana laws passed on Ballot Question 3 last year, the new law which provides victims of domestic violence, rape, sexual assault and stalking with increased rights and protections under a new housing law, and Boston’s new rental registration and inspection ordinance.

Moreover, this course will assist property managers in spotting the legal issues and taking steps to protect themselves and their clients. This is a course both for newer and more experienced managers because it will address areas of law that have recently changed and were not issues in the past. The property managers will analyze the areas of law in the context of how it affects them and their clients. Materials will be presented during the course. Most importantly, the course will not be simply theoretical. The Attorneys will discuss real live issues that have been encountered by property managers and discuss the best way to address the issues. Discussion will be conducted on ways the law affects the property managers, and property managers are encouraged to raise legal issues that they have encountered in their practice. The course will focus on areas of the law that every property manager should consider in order to reduce liability and maximize recoveries.
