Landlord/Tenant

Krefetz Law Firm LLC has established a reputation as one of Boston’s premier firms in the realm of landlord/tenant law. We aggressively and efficiently litigate complex and difficult evictions for residential and commercial landlords. We also selectively litigate a smaller number of tenant-side cases, particularly those involving illegally subdivided apartments and other major violations of landlord-tenant law.

A string of successes ranging from high-profile cases covered by local media to efficient resolutions of small disputes has solidified the standing of Krefetz Law Firm LLC as strong, specialized counsel in this field.

No matter your circumstances, Krefetz Law Firm LLC will understand your rights thoroughly and defend them tirelessly. We understand that landlord/tenant problems can seriously impact your financial condition and the stability of your business. Therefore, we work swiftly to mitigate the damage and stem the bleeding. We’ve seen it all, and we can help you overcome your challenge with the best possible outcome.

In addition to standard nonpayment cases, we thrive on the most complex landlord/tenant matters, including:

  • Commercial evictions and lease disputes
  • Rent increases in below-market properties
  • Tenant allegations of personal injury or property damage
  • Alleged violations of lead paint laws
  • Defeating rent withholding under M.G.L. c. 239 § 8A
  • Section 8 evictions

If necessary, we are comfortably prepared to try your case before a judge or jury.
