Landlord Training

The decision to become a landlord requires careful consideration and much thought. When making a decision to become a landlord, you must take stock of yourself, your lifestyle, and ask if you want to be responsible for others. It is true that owning a home has many advantages and benefits. But, you should prepare yourself for the hard work it will take to maintain this investment. A landlord is, in essence, a property manager. Your rental property is not only your home, but also your business! A rental property owner must adhere to the laws, rules and regulations that govern rental housing. To be successful, you must have a clear understanding of these practices.

Neighborworks® Southern Mass offers a comprehensive Landlord Training Program for new landlords or those seeking certification. The training is done one-on-one with you at one of our office locations in Quincy, Brockton or New Bedford. Each person will earn a certificate of completion at the end of the training.

US Veteran Finds A Home

David Ortega is a retired sergeant and Iraq War veteran, Ortega lives with his wife and four children in a four-bedroom, single-family Quincy home that NeighborWorks® Southern Mass and the City of Quincy purchased and renovated for veterans’ housing in 2013. Before they moved in, David and his family were homeless. “As a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, I am truly grateful for being able to provide my family with a safe and comfortable home,” Ortega said. “NeighborWorks® has just been awesome: My kids love the house, they have friends that sleep over and play in the backyard. It’s just been amazing. I could not ask for more.”
