Eviction Storage Law: Protecting the Belongings of Tenants Facing Eviction

Produced by Massachusetts Law Reform Institute
Reviewed February 25, 2013


Massachusetts law provides important rights to tenants who are facing an eviction or who have been evicted.

It is important to understand this law so that you can make sure your property is protected or stored in a licensed warehouse of your choosing if you are being evicted.

The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute has put together a booklet that answers basic questions about the eviction storage law and a one-page flyer that is a general overview of the law.
