Resources for Tenants and Landlords re: Eviction Moratorium During Covid-19 Emergency
On April 20, 2020 Governor Baker approved the Moratorium on Eviction during the Covid-19 Emergency. Unless extended by the Governor, this protection will end on August 18, 2020 or 45 days after the end of the Massachusetts state of emergency, whichever comes first. This law is intended to keep tenants from being evicted, and from having to cope with the eviction process, in the midst of our current public health crisis. However, tenants will ultimately still be responsible for lease payments to their landlord. In an effort to clarify tenant’s rights and responsibilities under the law, the Massachusetts Department of Housing and Development (DHCD) issued more detailed guidance for tenants: https://www.mass.gov/doc/dhcd-
Additionally, the Massachusetts Housing Partnership developed a resource guide for tenants and others facing financial distress due to the emergency. This is available in English, Spanish and Portuguese on MHP’s website: https://www.mhp.net/news/2020/
The purpose of the Affordable Housing Trust shall be to provide for the preservation and creation of affordable and community housing in the Town of Medfield for the benefit of low and moderate-income households.
