Residential State Sanitary Code, Getting Started with Mixed Use Property


May 9th, 2019.


5:30 PM to 8:30 PM




Delaney House


Jillian Campayno



We're headed north to better serve our Holyoke members and also hopefully meet some new faces from the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce.

*Part I: Residential State Sanitary Code

We'll start the evening by reviewing the residential state sanitary code, which is the defining feature of residential rental real estate. Unlike your own home, in which you might tolerate deficiencies, or a commercial building, where you can put maintenance on the renter, residential rental real estate requires owners to maintain their premises inside and out. We'll be reviewing the common issues and how to remedy and foolproof them.

This part of the presentation will be given by David Cotter, Springfield's Deputy Director of Housing Code Enforcement. David is kind enough to join us outside his jurisdiction and share his knowledge of the state sanitary code, which applies to all municipalities equally.

*Part II: Getting Started with Mixed Use Property

We'd like to branch out and explore how we can house both a business and some residents in the same building. For many of us with a need for a small office, purchasing a dedicated commercial space is unaffordable. But with residents above to pay some of the rent, suddenly a variety of buildings can start to make sense. We'll start with what "triple net" means and take it from there. We'll also talk about how to identify a downtown that's headed in the right direction, or whether it even matters.

This part of the presentation will be a moderated discussion between experienced mixed-use landlords, TBD.
