Massachusetts Rental Agreement Forms and Landlord Resources

In Massachusetts, 12 percent of residents are renters. That presents a great opportunity for landlords in Massachusetts, but only if they know where to turn for help. Did you know, for example, that the state has imposed many regulations governing the security deposit, including what fees can be collected at signing, where deposits must be kept, what must be done with interest earnings on those monies, and how they must be returned to departing tenants. With that much red tape around the security deposit as an example, then it just makes sense to find a guide through the ins and outs of running an investment property.

Should I Call My Tenant's Previous Landlords?
Posted November 28, 2016
Applicants for your rental property completed their forms, agreed to a background checked and showed you recent pay stubs to verify their income. You've met with them and have a good feeling in your gut. It's decision time, right? Well, not quite. You have a few more questions to ask before you should sign a lease with these applicants. But the answers are only a phone call away. Obtain your applicant's permission, and then reach out to current and former landlords and interview them. These people have, or had, a relationship with your applicant. Ask if the tenant pays or paid rent on time. Ask if they took care of the unit during their time there. Ask whether neighbors ever complained about the tenant.

The Accidental Landlord: Should We Try Renting Out Our Old House?
Posted November 14, 2016
Carrie Kirby and her family faced a tough choice when they left Chicago in 2012 to return to California. The Chicago Tribune columnist wrote about having to decide between selling her and her husband's Illinois home at a loss or becoming landlords. They chose the latter. Many homeowners confront this same scenario, as circumstances force a family to move. It could be landing a new job, searching for better schools or even inheriting a property. With the housing market beginning to pick up, many hope that selling the old house will be a snap, but the fear is that if it doesn't sell quickly, there will be two mortgages to pay.
