Tenant-Landlord

Owning rental property in Massachusetts can be both rewarding and frustrating, particularly when a tenant stops paying rent or violates the terms of a lease. Massachusetts landlords are subject to powerful and sometimes complicated rules intended to protect tenants.

For nearly a decade, Charles River Law Partners LLC has assisted landlords throughout greater Boston to recover possession of their rental property through negotiated agreements and judicial evictions, including forced removal by Sheriff. The legal procedures and rules that govern evictions in Massachusetts must be carefully followed, as even innocent errors can result in extremely costly delays and even large monetary judgments against landlords.

Charles River Law Partners LLC offers immediate service to landlords seeking to evict problem tenants or to recover possession of rental property for their own use.  Our library of eviction notices, pleadings, and agreements have been tested and improved through frequent use in the Massachusetts housing and district courts.  We strive to bring a practical and creative approach to solving problem tenant situations.  Some cases demand aggressive judicial intervention, while others are best suited to mediated solutions.  At all times, our goal is always to protect our client's real estate, minimize the potential for conflict and liability, and maximize profitability.

We offer reasonable flat fees for uncontested unlawful detainer cases based upon non-payment of rent. We offer reasonable hourly rates for legal services for tenant contested evictions.  We process cases expeditiously, but deliberately in order to assure compliance with all procedural requirements and to avoid pitfalls that could result in delays or legal liability for the landlord.

We strive to bring a practical approach to solving problem tenant situations so that remedies are obtained without excessive cost. Some cases require aggressive measures, and some cases are best suited to mediated solutions. We always remember that our clients are real people with real problems and we attempt to use our skills to assist them to reach the best outcome.

Flat Fee

We strive to assist our clients to resolve their litigated dispute for the lowest cost. We charge reasonable flat rates for uncontested evictions based upon tenant defaults such as non payment of rent or breach of the rental agreement.

Our current flat fee for an uncontested eviction is $1000.

We offer a range of hourly rates for professional services for contested matters. We find that much of the work can be completed by paralegals at very reasonable cost.

We invite you to contact us by e-mail or at (617) 357-4898 to schedule a consultation.
