Massachusetts Laws and Lease Requirements

Whether you are a landlord or a renter, it is best to make sure that you are familiar with the legal aspects of the rental process. Below, you will find a list of nine versions of Massachusetts Rental Lease Agreements and a more detailed breakdown of the most popular and requested versions of Massachusetts Rental Lease Agreements.

There are nine versions of the Massachusetts Rental Lease Agreement:

  • Lease with Option to Purchase Agreement
  • Room Rental Agreement
  • Sublease Agreement
  • Commercial Lease Agreement
  • Greater Boston Residential Lease Agreement
  • Association of Realtors Residential Lease Agreement
  • Standard Residential Lease Agreement
  • Month-to-Month Rental Agreement
  • Termination Lease Letter

The first most popular version of the Massachusetts Rental Lease Agreement is the Month-to-Month  Rental Agreement. Monthly rent of premises is one of the most convenient ways of renting, both for the renter and landlord. With this version of the lease, the landlord receives monthly rent payments, and the renter can extend the lease by a month since this version of the lease is extended by monthly payments.

The second most popular version of the Massachusetts Rental Lease Agreement is the Termination Lease Letter. This is a special form of document that the renter or landlord must draw up one month before the end of the monthly lease.

In general, Termination Lease Letter is the second most popular, as it is necessary for monthly rental housing or the Month-to-Month  Rental Agreement. There is a need to draw up a Termination Lease Letter because it makes the lease of the premises safer for the landlord and the renter. It ensures that a month before the day of leaving the premises, the landlord will have the opportunity to find new renters, and the renter will have found a new premise.


Security Deposits

Security Deposits are a deposit for the premises, which is a preliminary rent. Security Deposits are a great way to secure the process of renting premises because such a deposit can cover unforeseen monetary expenses in case something goes wrong. In the state of Massachusetts, the maximum security deposit can be no more than 100 percent of the rent for one month of rent.

If at the end of the lease, all conditions are met, the landlord is obliged to return the deposit to the renter no later than 30 days after the end of the lease. The lessee can also request 5% of the deposit from the bank.
