Landlord Relief


In a proposal filed by Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr, landlords may soon be able to request assistance from the state if tenants fall behind on rental payments.

The assistance would come in the form of mortgage relief. A loss of at least 50% of rental income would need to be shown to be eligible.

The bill is aimed to complement the recent legislation that would prohibit landlords from filing evictions in Massachusetts.
