This question is regarding rental laws in MASSACHUSETTS:
My lease was due to expire in September 2009, and I recently signed and mailed the extension documents to the company extending the lease till May next year.
My building has a pest problem, and I admit I have brought this to the company's attention alot via email. They were very responsive initially, and I like the place and location.
My latest email of a cockroach problem was replied to by a "suggestion" by the company that I may be more comfortable some place else, and that I was free to leave at any time. I have been labelled a "serial complainer".
This is my first time renting, so I have no idea what to do. Is this a notice? Am I being evicted? If I do decide to take them up on the "offer", what sort of documentation should I get from the company to make myself secure from litigation/collections later on?
