Because Massachusetts law has so many protections for tenants, landlords wishing to remove problem tenants must adhere precisely to strict rules and regulations. Even a minor deviation from the prescribed process can ruin the landlord’s chances of a successful eviction. At the Law Office of Vesper Gibbs Barnes & Associates, we represent landlords in residential evictions. We guide you carefully through the process, step by step, to facilitate a swift and cost-effective resolution.
In Massachusetts, it is illegal for a landlord to remove occupants from a dwelling without a court order. So-called “self-help” evictions only place the landlord on the wrong side of the law, making it harder to be rid of a problem tenant, who is costing them money and may be driving down property value. It is vitally important that you adhere to the process:
The process can be very straightforward, and many evictions cases can be settled in mediation, avoiding a trial altogether. But there are legal technicalities that can give your problem tenant new life. Your tenant may appeal the judgment or simply defy the court, forcing you to take the additional step of obtaining a violation of lease execution. To ensure a swift and sure summary process, you should consult an experienced and knowledgeable landlord-tenant attorney. Our lawyers have more than 40 years of combined experience in evictions cases in Roxbury, Boston, and the surrounding counties.
