Renter Readiness Workshop Offered in Manchester

NeighborWorks Greater Manchester, which owns 266 apartments in Manchester, recently developed (with in input from landlords) a Renter Readiness curriculum to teach tenants their rights and responsibilities. The three-hour workshop is taught by two Manchester landlords, Lee LeBlanc and Heather White. Incentivizing your tenants to attend a Renter Readiness workshop will increase your cash flow and property values in one easy step.

Tenants who attend the free landlord-taught Renter Readiness workshop learn to:

· Pay their rent on time, every time, increasing your cash flow

· Maintain their units, reducing your turnover costs

· Report maintenance issues in a timely manner, lowering repair costs

· Stay in their units longer, giving you a more reliable cash flow

The next Renter Readiness workshop will be held Thursday, May 13, from 6-9 p.m. at the Silver Mill Apartments Community Room, 426 Somerville St.

For more information, including ideas on how to incentivize your tenants to attend, contact Will Stewart at 626-4663, ext. 12, or via email at will@nwgm.org.
