Feburary 24th Meeting

February 24, 2020 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

NFA evaluates existing insurance policies in order to determine what coverage may be applicable to a claim as well as business interuption losses and extra expense claims for businesses. Determine values for setting covered damages and much more, I think we can agree that insurance as much as we hate to pay the premiums is a must have in any business. This is an important presentation that can save you thousands if you have a loss.

Jay Franklin the Director of Tompkins County Department of Assessment recently received the Harry Dunks Memorial Award, his department is responsible for assessing all real property within Tompkins County at a uniform percentage of fair market value. I'm sure this is of much importance to all of us because it ultimately affects our bottom line.

TCHD will present on the importance of Lead disclosures to tenants, the department will be discussing Article X ( Article 10) which is a law that was enacted in 1992 which requires landlords to disclose any known lead based paint hazards within the property to perspective tenants. I think a lot of us could use some clarity on our specific responsiblies in informing prospective tenants about the presence of lead based paint. According to the law you must follow a specific process outlined by the EPA before renting out any properties built before 1978. Come to the meeting and find out what the specific steps are that you must take to inform prospective tenants and keep out of trouble with this law.

This will be another must attend meeting so come early and get a seat.
