In Massachusetts, the law regarding security deposits is very pro-tenant.
Has any of the following happened to you?
- Landlord did not return the security deposit within 30 days after termination of the tenancy
- Landlord did not deposit the security deposit in an escrow account.
- Landlord made up false damage
- Landlord charged you for cleaning costs and took that from the security deposit
If your landlord did not follow the law, you could be entitled to 3 times the amount of the security deposit.
