December Meeting Today at Noon

Join us this noon, online via Zoom, as we try something new for meeting during this pandemic.

If you’ve never used Zoom before, visit to set up the free application on your PC or mobile device. It’s very easy to use.

Attorney Gregory Usher, with Nazette, Marner, Nathanson & Shea, LLP, will address our group online, via Zoom.

He’s very knowledgeable in landlord tenant law, and Gregory will focus this month on security deposits.

How can a landlord legally withhold all or part of the security deposit?
What charges should be avoided or are illegal?
What is considered acceptable wear and tear, per Iowa Code?
How much can we actually charge for damages?
Is it wise to do a final walkthrough with your renter on the move-out day?

Greg will discuss recent court decisions and what they suggest for best practices. In another topic, Greg will cover post derecho insurance claim issues dealing with contractors and insurance adjusters.

Those of you who have heard Gregory speak to our group before know that his topics are interesting and very relevant.
