9:00 – 9:40: How to Evict for Airbnb

Short-term rentals have become a very hot-button issue for landlords in recent years. LandlordsNY Legal Expert Michelle Maratto Itkowitz will answer your questions on what to do when you discover tenants in your building using popular rental sites like Airbnb. All attendees will also receive a takeaway booklet with Q A plus helpful tips for a smooth eviction.

9:40 – 10:40: Leveraging Technology for Multifamily Management

In this interactive session, a varied cross section of landlords and property managers will shed light on how they have embraced technology to streamline and bring order to the property management process. Panelists will share their experiences with various property management software products, discussing the relative pros and cons of their solution, why that chose their particular path, and what features are still on their wish lists.

  • How well has their software enabled them to integrate various parts of the business—from billing to rent collection to vendor payments to new tenant applications?
  • How important are the new NYC agency monitoring subscription tools to people’s businesses?
  • How are people using technology to manage work orders and repairs?
  • Though the idea of being “paperless,” is hard to imagine in this business, what are people doing to cut down on paper and take advantage of electronic document storage tools?
  • Is anyone looking to e-signatures to eliminate paper leases?

Beyond these questions, the moderator plans to open things up to the audience for your participation, so please be prepared to share your experiences with the panel.
