• Massachusetts has protections that may stop your eviction!

    If you are behind on rent and applied for rental assistance, the court must pause your case until after the rental assistance agency decides to approve or deny your application. The court cannot order an eviction while your case is paused. This protection lasts until March 31, 2023.

    This protection is in place until the end of the COVID-19 Emergency.
