Newburyport, Massachusetts, Landlord Tenant Law Attorneys

Crossing the Lines

Landlords and tenants have different rights and different obligations. Some of these are mandated by statute, some become legally binding because they are included in the terms of the lease.

What landlords and tenants have in common is how easy it is for either of them to cross the line between what is legally allowed and what is not.

If you are a landlord or commercial tenant in Essex County, Massachusetts, or Rockingham County, New Hampshire — find the experience needed to address these issues by calling Mark L. Janos, or contacting us online.
