The laws in Massachusetts regarding landlord and tenant relationships are strict and heavily enforced.
Landlords often times do not fully understand how to comply with the numerous statutes and regulations, which can have long lasting and costly consequences.
Real estate is an investment and tenants are what keep that investment profitable. A landlord that takes the necessary steps to make sure its procedures and its properties are in compliance with the law often times has happier tenants and less legal issues down the road.
Unfortunately, sometimes landlords are faced with no other option than to evict a tenant. Among the most common reasons to evict a tenant in Massachusetts is for non-payment of rent. However, there are other reasons such as breach of lease or a no-fault eviction for a tenant at will. When deciding to evict a tenant, it is important to know the correct way to begin the eviction process and the legal proceedings that follow.

I would definitely recommend Sean and Mr. Dillon to anyone. Worth every dime compared to other attorneys in the area that our company has used in the past. Very flexible, very fair, responsive, and determined to stand behind their clients (large or small cases). Their team’s attention to detail and enthusiasm to support their clients is difficult to miss. The entire process was made seamless and comfortable. Will be going back if needed.
