Denava v. Reilly

DENAVA vs. REILLY, 2011 Mass. App. Div. 127, June 13, 2011.

Residential landlord’s failure to provide tenant with statement of condition of leased premises at commencement of lease, to place $500 security deposit in escrow in interest-bearing account and inform tenant of bank holding money, and failure to return deposit within 30 days after end of tenancy, violated security deposit law, and thus tenant was entitled to reasonable attorney’s fees, triple damages, plus interest under M.G.L. c. 186, § 15B.
