I’m curious to know if there is current legislation in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in regards to Tenant/Landlord laws. On several occasions, I have experienced blatant invasion of privacy from my current Landlord. He has entered my apartment without notice, or warning, only to discover that I am present.
I understand that a Landlord needs to gain access to apartments to oversee maintenance issues and other potentials emergencies. However, he has a history of entering the premises when he sees fit. This is very unsettled and a clear violation of my right to privacy as a tenant, not to mention a security concern—his behavior has slipped into the realm of stalking..
I would appreciate any suggestions you may have on how to solve this dilemma.
