Navigating Landlord-Tenant Law

Massachusetts has laws that are considered to be tenant-friendly. At Alan J. Pransky, Attorney at Law, landlords and tenants find a committed advisor and advocate.

Since 1980, we have been providing qualified and experienced legal representation to both landlords and tenants throughout the state. For more information on how we may be able to help you, contact Alan J. Pransky today.

Advice And Representation For Landlords

Over the years, the laws have been changed so that landlords have very strict requirements that govern the ways in which they deal with tenants. When dealing with a tenant issue, it is advisable for landlords to consult with a lawyer experienced in landlord-tenant law before dealing with a tenant in or out of court or pursuing eviction.

We will review the situation and help you deal with the current dispute, and we can also provide guidance on how to prevent future issues. By developing policies that prevent disputes in the first place, you can save yourself the time, expense and uncertainty of tenant complaints and litigation.

We advise landlords on a wide range of general operations issues and dispute prevention, including how to take deposits, what types of deposits are permissible, how to deal with potential hazardous substances and how to ensure that the condition of your premises meets all building codes.

Resolving Issues For Tenants

Tenants often are not fully aware of what rights they have when dealing with landlords. Our firm provides personalized representation to tenants who are dealing with any of a wide range of concerns or disputes.

We can educate you about your legal rights as a renter under your lease agreement. We can explain your right to a habitable environment. We will explain all of the options you may have for resolving your dispute.

We take the time to review any documents pertaining to the condition of the dwelling and can take action against a landlord in order to have faults repaired.

We also defend tenants facing eviction, helping clients understand the time constraints put in place to protect them by the Massachusetts eviction law. If you delay in enlisting an attorney to help with an eviction action, your rights may be lost.

Landlord-tenant law also applies to former owners of real estate after their property has been foreclosed. People in this unfortunate situation may feel pressured to vacate the property immediately after foreclosure. We can help people in this predicament understand their rights.
