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.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    I paid for this webinar to view at my leisure. I was emailed the Webinar ID and my password on the morning of November 8. I have tried logging in several different ways this morning and I cannot get in to view this webinar. Can someone send me a link that will work? I don’t always have time at my desk to do this, and this morning would have been preferable.
    Thanks for any help you can give.
