If you are a tenant whose landlord has failed to return your security deposit or whose landlord has mishandled your last month’s rent deposit, you may be able to benefit from Massachusetts’ strong security deposit and last month’s rent deposit laws. In some situations, they allow tenants to recover their unreturned deposits plus significant damages. Tenants can also win attorney’s fees from the landlord in some cases, meaning that, in such instances, a client may end up paying nothing for our services. If you are looking for help to write a security deposit demand letter or you would like to pursue your landlord in court, please contact us to see if we can be of assistance.
If you are a landlord concerned about any liability you may have incurred under the security deposit and/or last month’s rent law, you might also benefit from our representation. Often a seemingly serious security deposit mistake can be mitigated by simply returning a deposit. Before paying significant damages to a tenant, give us a call.
