Sterling Education Services: “Landlord-Tenant Law: Lease Agreements, Defaults, and Collections Seminar”

Program Summary:

Home ownership and rental vacancy rates haven’t been as low as they currently are for more than thirty years. That can be great news for landlords, but it also means that finding the best tenants for your property (and protecting yourself when bad tenants slip in) is more important than ever. Uncertain economic conditions and the influx of more baby boomers and families into the rental market mean that you and your clients need strategies in place to write solid leases, provide accommodations, and evict when necessary. Our faculty are familiar with the issues you’re facing every day, so put their knowledge and experience to work and make the most out of the growing rental markets.

Program Highlights:

  • Ethical situations and conflicts of interest
  • How to handle abandoned property
  • Collecting what’s owed to you after the tenancy
  • The latest developments and cases
  • Getting all the steps right in evictions
  • What to do when a tenant is in default
  • Do I have to allow service or emotional support animals?
  • Avoiding discrimination in tenant screening
Who Should Attend:

  • Real Estate Brokers
  • Property Managers
  • Attorneys – Bankruptcy/Debtor/Creditor
  • Attorneys – General Practice
  • Attorneys – Landlord Tenant
  • Attorneys – Leasing and Contracts
  • Attorneys – Evictions

St. Alphonsus Festival of Trees

The holiday season is a time for coming together to celebrate and revel in tradition. It is also a time for thinking of others and giving of ourselves. That is why the Saint Alphonsus Foundation hosts the Festival of Trees. As a favorite holiday event for 33 years, the Festival has raised more than $9 million dollars to improve healthcare in our community. The 2016 Festival of Trees will take place November 23 – 27 with the Gala on November 22 and the Fashion Show on November 28.

Share in the magic as the Boise Centre becomes home to a wonderland of holiday splendor, featuring hundreds of lavishly decorated Christmas trees, wreaths and inspirational decor. From its opening night black-tie Gala to the Festival Fashion Show and North Pole Village, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Every year, proceeds from the Festival of Trees help Saint Alphonsus deliver the best kind of healthcare to our community. This year funds raised will benefit our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
