New NWCLA Membership Web Site

We are proud to announce the launch of our NEW NWCLA Members' Web Site. This site has been years in the planning and testing stages to bring you a unique tool to use as an NWCLA Member.

With the help of Massachusetts Landlord/Tenant Law Attorney, Inessa Shur of the Shur Law Group we have provided our members with something they have been asking for, for years; Massachusetts Tenant-At-Will and Massachusetts Lease Rental Agreements. These forms are especially written and designed to adhere to and be in compliance with Massachusetts Housing Laws.

To get an account on the members site, please complete the "Request and Account" form. A link is at the bottom of the members only website, or you can access it directly here: https://www.nwcla.com/members/request-an-account/.

Once that comes through, and we are able to verify your paid NWCLA membership, we will be able to get your account set up for you. Please be patient with us as we ramp up on this new process. All of your NWCLA board members are unpaid and are volunteers.

Code of Ethics fot the NWCLA

The members of NWCLA recognizing our duty to the public and the intimate nature of the relationship between the apartment resident and the owner or manager and being aware of the vastly increasing role of the apartment industry and providing the apartment residing public with the maximum in quality and service upon the highest standard of honesty and integrity, do hereby bind ourselves with the adoption of these Code of Ethics, with each and every member, together and alone, agreeing that so long as we remain members of NWCLA and so long as nothing contained herein shall be unlawful, we shall:

Promote, employ and maintain a high standard of integrity, obligations and services in the operation of all rental housing units. Maintain and operate all rental housing units in accordance with fair and honorable standards of competition, ever mindful of the purposes of NWCLA and in compliance with the articles and by-laws thereof. Strive continually to promote the education and fraternity of the membership and to promote the progress and dignity of the rental housing industry in a better image of itself in order that the public may be better served. Seek to provide better values, so that an even greater share of the public may enjoy the many benefits of the rental housing industry. Establish high ethical standards of conduct with rental agencies, suppliers and others doing business with the rental housing industry. Endeavor to expose all schemes to mislead or defraud the renting public and to aid in the exposure of those responsible. Refrain from attempting to obtain residents, through advertising or otherwise, by means of deceptive, misleading or fraudulent statements, misrepresentations or the use of implications, unwarranted by fact of reasonable probability. Members shall be truthful in representing current and former tenants qualifications to other members.

The power to interpret, administer and endorse the provisions hereof shall be vested in the Board of Directors of the NWCLA with the power of suspension or expulsion, after hearing of any member found violating same, or the spirit hereof.

NWCLA Meeting Feb 15th, 2018 at Monty Tech in Fitchburg, MA

Steven A. Thebodo CPA

The rules of the tax deduction game have changed. If you do not know what the new rules will allow, and what they will not; you may find yourself at the end of the year with a tax burden you did not see coming and you may not be prepared for. Know the new rules can also have you take advantage of the new ways to play the game.

Come out and join us for Steven's presentation on the new tax code and how it is going to affect investment property owners going forward. There is going to be a lot of valuable information for property owners that you absolutely do not want to miss.

See you there!!
