    I agree with my colleagues' advice. You should try to file it yourself as soon as possible, but obviously it's best to seek counsel who can assist you with this.

    You may commence what is called a summary process action with the assistance of an attorney. This will get them out of the apartment and you can probably recover the rent that is in arrears. Consult an attorney as soon as possible.

    I agree with Attorney Mason. You will probably have difficulty convincing the court that a verbal contract existed, as this often turns into a "she said" "he said" affair. However, it may be possible to recover under what's called an unjust enrichment theory. You should consult an attorney to help you out with this. Also, going forward it is always prefereable to reduce your agreement to writing and have the contract drafted by an Attorney. Massachusetts has a law called the statute of...

    If you do not dispute that you owe the debt you can enter into an agreement in writing with the attorney where you pay what you can afford on a monthly basis. Try to get the other attorney to waive the interest owed if you can. Once the debt is paid in full have the opposing attorney dismiss the case.

    It is possible that you could have the wrong address. However, if the mail was not returned to sender it's also possible that they got your letter and are choosing not to respond to it. It is always a good idea to consult with an attorney who can draft the letter for you outlining the strength of your legal position.

    I agree with Attorney Kremer. You may have a claim for negligent or intentional infliction of emotional distress. In order to prevail on an intentional infliction of emotion distress claim you must prove that the woman's conduct was so extreme and outrageous that it exceeds all bounds of decency. I would consult an attorney who can research the relevant case law with regards to what constitutes extreme/outrageous conduct in Massachusetts, so that you will know whether it will be worthwhile...

    When a landlord gives a tenant notice that their tenancy is being terminated within six months after the tenant made a report or complaint regarding health/building code violations a rebuttable presumption arises that the notice is a reprisal against the tenant. This constitutes a defense against the eviction. However, if you are able to show the Court that the real reason you are evicting the tenant is because they are not paying rent rather than because she reported you, you may be...
