Massachusetts landlord/tenant law can be very complex and detail-oriented. The attorneys at Scolnick Laverty & Gouveia have regional recognition for specialization and expertise in real estate issues, litigation and landlord/tenant law. We utilize our talents to assist clients in litigating, obtaining favorable settlements, preventing litigation, maximizing profits, protecting landlords' rights, and educating property owners and property managers so that they are in compliance with the law.

We represent clients who are large building owners and managers of subsidized and market multi-family developments, not-for-profit housing, luxury apartment buildings, manufactured housing communities, single-room occupancy ("SRO") buildings, restaurants, commercial properties and single family homes. We also represent both residential and commercial landlords in a full range of leasing and leasing-related matters, ranging from a straightforward eviction matter for non-payment of rent to more complex housing discrimination matters. In total, Scolnick Laverty & Gouveia LLP represents more owners/managers of apartments, in Massachusetts than any other legal firm in Massachusetts.
