Landlord/Tenant Disputes

landlord-300x216There is a common misconception in Massachusetts that it is impossible to evict a tenant, even one that does not pay her rent, and that it is impossible to collect rent from a tenant who is unwilling to pay.

Nothing could be further from the truth. While tenants have many protections in Massachusetts, payment of rent is still a requirement. There a number of defenses but the Law Offices of James Wingfield can help you to collect the rent that is due to you, whether your tenant has filed for bankruptcy or not, and can help you to evict a non-paying tenant.

When James Wingfield founded the Law Offices of James Wingfieldhis mission was to help individuals and small businesses. James Wingfield has experience in representing landlords both large and small, in Bankruptcy Court, Massachusetts Housing Court and the District Courts throughout Massachusetts.

He has taken that experience to the Law Offices of James Wingfield where he helps small landlords who desperately need the income from their rental units to satisfy their own creditors and make to their mortgage payments.

We understand that many homeowners in Central and Western Massachusetts are able to make their mortgage payments and stay in their homes only by subsidizing their mortgage payments with rental income. We understand that without those regular monthly payments, many of these small landlords would themselves be unable to pay their debts and might be forced to consider bankruptcy themselves.
