Landlord Tenant

Representing Landlords in Commercial and Residential Matters

Our lawyers at Taylor, Ganson & Perrin, LLP, have many years of experience handling landlord tenant matters. Our clients are typically property owners with a few rental properties as part of a family business. We represent such clients in matters brought by tenants as well as in proceedings initiated by the landlords themselves. In both cases, we strive to act in the best interests of our client.

Representing landlords in matters related to Massachusetts landlord tenant law.

We represent residential and commercial landlords in landlord tenant matters such as:

  • Illegal sublets
  • Failure to pay rent
  • Nuisance tenants
  • Non-renewing tenants
  • Violations of the lease, such as more people living in the apartment than allowed or using the apartment for a commercial use with a residential lease
  • Charges of negligent property maintenance
  • Ensuring that landlords follow prescribed procedures in unlawful detainer actions
  • Screening tenant applications
  • Evicting tenants
  • Reviewing residential and commercial lease agreements

Our real estate lawyers advise landlords about their rights and responsibilities under often-complex Massachusetts landlord tenant law. It is easy for landlords to violate the law unknowingly. We use our knowledge of landlord tenant law to help our clients avoid a costly mistake, such as a wrongful eviction or misuse of a security deposit. We research each case thoroughly, advising clients to settle if it is clear that they will loose because of an inadvertent violation of the law.

In addition to representing property owners, our attorneys act for tenants, especially students and others who are renting a condo. Our involvement with condo conversion projects gives us knowledge of how condo communities operate and how they handle individual leases under local landlord tenant law.
