On Monday, September 16, 2019, a significant ruling was issued by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in the case of Davis v Comerford. The landlord requested rent be set aside in escrow. The renter argued that not only was escrow unwarranted in this case, but rent escrow was illegal in all cases.
Attorney Peter Vickery will walk us through the amicus brief MassLandlords filed in the case of Davis v Comerford. He will also review the tenant brief and spend most of the hour on the final decision by the SJC. In the decision, the court established guidelines for rent escrow motions. Attendees will leave understanding the factors judges must consider when evaluating rent escrow motions. Suitable for landlord-tenant attorneys and advanced self-represented DIY landlords. All are welcome.
