TENANTS HAVE RIGHTS IN MASSACHUSETTS!
These are the some of the typical claims a tenant can bring against a landlord in Massachusetts:
I am committed to helping my tenant clients resolve their residential housing disputes. I work closely with tenants and landlords throughout Massachusetts. Working closely with clients on every aspect of the landlord/tenant relationship and walking them through the process before, during, or after the problems have arisen.
Some of the issues I typically confront:
Illegal "self help" evictions
Breach of lease
Breach of the warranty of habitability
Security deposit violations
No heat or inadequate heat
Breach of the Tenant's quiet enjoyment
Subleases and assignments
Violations of the consumer protection act
Landlord/tenant law have very strict rules for landlords and tenants. The facts of a particular situation will affect the resolution of a given case. That is why it's important for you to have an experienced tenant rights attorneys on your side. Contact my office today to arrange a free initial email or teleconference.
These strict rules put timelines on both tenants and landlords to answer complaints, discovery, and decide on the correct strategy to handle a given case.
A landlord's failure to follow the strict security deposit laws can mean the landlord's case for property damages can be thrown out of court in one instance and the landlord can win in another.
I will fight for you and your case. Your goals will become my goals. I will explain your options and what each choice can mean in your case. What evidence we need to present and how it can be presented.
