Late last year, a new law went into effect, c.271 of 2004, which amended MGL c.139 and c.105, and provides some additional regulation regarding the storage of belongings of former tenants. Mass. Legal Help has, as always, come up with a great source: New Eviction Storage Law: Protecting the Belongings of Tenants Facing Eviction, April 2005. The booklet includes who is covered by the law, storage company responsibilities, tenant's rights, and sample letters and forms, and is now linked from Mass. Law About Eviction.
