State News: Important Information on the New MA Short-Term Rentals Law


Governor Charlie Baker has signed into law a bill regulating and taxing short-term rentals. The timeline for implementation of the law will pose significant challenges for REALTORS® conducting short-term rentals in 2019. The Massachusetts Association of REALTORS® has created a helpful Q&A to provide REALTORS® with an overview of the new law that goes fully into effect in July. MAR has also posted the following documents to help manage short-term rentals: 

- Updated Short-Term Rental Lease
- Community Impact Fee Form
- 14-day Exemption Form
- Required Insurance Disclosure Form

These forms and more information on the impacts of the new law are available here from MAR
