​It is inevitable – residents pass away and landlords are left with the daunting task of navigating the triangle of problems:  protecting the former resident’s personal property, addressing the immediate needs of heirs and children and getting the property ready to rent again.  It is never an easy situation for any of the parties involved.  In this webinar, we will discuss the common issues that arise for landlords when a resident passes away including best practices for addressing certain issues before they arise and legally protecting the landlord from liability afterwards.  Our discussion will include:

  • Power of Attorney
  • Next of Kin
  • Personal Property
  • Minor Children
  • Opening an Estate

Keep Watching - more coming soon.

Domestic violence is an issue almost every landlord has been forced to face.  Can you evict?  Do you need to get involved at all?  Why is the resident looking to you for help? 

Whether you’re a federally funded property, a tax credit property, or accept a Section 8 voucher, you must comply with the Violence Against Women Act.  Every landlord should know the rules on when the Act applies, transfers, documentation, and liability.  In this webinar, we will discuss: 

  • Recognizing when the VAWA May or May Not Apply
  • Sorting out the Paperwork
  • Requesting Documentation
  • Transfers
  • Liability
  • Recent Cases Interpreting the Act​
