*Part I: Rental Applications
The critical step in a tenant screening process is the rental application. Is it complete? Is it true? And is it enough?

In this segment, we will review the general context in which tenant screening happens, covering credit, criminal, and housing history. Then we will review the MassLandlords application box-by-box, with examples completed. Can we verify their prior address? What do their pay stubs look like, or do they have proof of subsidy or other income? Why does it say "etc." under pets? Finally, we'll give guidance on how to communicate acceptance or rejection, and why ghosting an applicant may come back to haunt you.

Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of how to use the MassLandlords rental application, how to verify information presented, and how to rent knowing your new customers are likely to succeed.

*Part II: Member Choice TBA
We're holding this slot for educational content requested by members. What questions have you had lately? Know someone who would make a great speaker without a sales pitch? Email us at hello@masslandlords.net. Tell us which location you want to attend (if it's not already clear from your ticket purchase history.)

Topic will be decided and announced shortly based on your suggestions.

*"No Sales Pitch" Guarantee
MassLandlords offers attendees of directly managed events a "No Sales Pitch" guarantee. If a guest speaker offers services, their presentation will not discuss pricing, promotions, or reasons why you should hire them. We do not permit speakers to pay for or sponsor events. Guest speakers are chosen for their expertise and willingness to present helpful educational content. Your purchase of an event ticket sustains our nonprofit model.
