Address: 50 Milk St, Boston, MA 02110, USA
Thanks to our Property Rights Supporters, our early warning system has notified us of a major upcoming hearing: Tuesday, July 16, 1p to 5p State House, Rm A-1 Bill text does not remain constant during the legislative process, but it is critical that owners, managers, brokers, and others in the real estate industry speak in favor of or in opposition to the various bills being heard.
  • Do you think it's unfair that a renter can trash your apartment and live there rent free while the courts make you fix it? If so, then you need to speak in favor of rent escrow, which would close the free rent trick loophole.
  • Do you think it's unfair that landlords have to pay for an attorney, even if we don't want one, and through our real estate and income taxes, now we will have to pay for our renter's attorney, as well? If so, then you need to speak against one version of right to counsel.
  • Do you think it's unfair that bad tenants -- indeed all tenants -- will have their names expunged from the eviction record, such that landlords have no way to know whether the applicant before them was evicted, or for what reason, or how much they disrupted their previous community? If so, then you need to speak against eviction sealing.
