Strang Scott associate, Jennifer Lynn, was a panelist at a recent Boston Bar Association event discussing M.G.L. c. 186, § 15B, commonly known as the “Massachusetts Security Deposit Law,” and providing an overview of the Law’s requirements. The Law is one of the most heavily litigated statutes in Massachusetts that affects both landlords and tenants. In addition, to the statutory requirements, the panelists discussed the implications of the recent opinion from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Phillips v. Equity Residential Management, LLC, 478 Mass. 251 (2017).
