Mass Gov Rental Agreement

Your rental agreement is a contract between you and your landlord. You should discuss your options with a lawyer before taking steps that may constitute a breach of your lease. Massachusetts Fair Housing law prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, religion, national origin, age, ancestry, military origin or service, sex, sexual preference, marital status, disability or the need for a guide dog, with the exception of two family dwellings. A landlord also cannot refuse to rent you an apartment because you receive a rent subsidy because the apartment contains lead, or, with a few exceptions, because you have children. Water: The owner must provide you with enough water with sufficient pressure to meet your usual needs. In limited circumstances, you may be charged water costs as long as this is clearly stated in your written rental agreement and there is a separate meter for your unit. The lessor must also provide the facilities to heat the water at a temperature between 110o and 130o F, but your lease or lease agreement in writing may require you to pay for the fuel and provide the fuel to heat the water. Whether it is a lease or a lease agreement, the tenant must pay the rent, abide by the rules agreed with the landlord and take responsibility for the damage caused to the apartment that is more than just “normal wear and tear”. The owner must provide an apartment that is safe, clean and compliant with the Massachusetts Health Code, and must keep all promises in the lease or lease. Each lease must have certain conditions and must not have other conditions. The landlord must ensure that the tenant receives a legible copy of the rental or rental agreement. The lease agreement must not contain any illegal conditions, such as. B: A rental fee does not last a certain period of time and does not end on a specific date, as does a rental agreement.

In a rental fee, the tenant pays the agreed rent each month for an indeterminate period. Either the landlord or the tenant can decide to terminate the tenancy agreement by sending notice to the other party either 30 days or one month before the next rent payment expires, depending on the longest amount. In this type of contract, the rent can vary within the same 30 days or one month before the end of the lease.
