Can a Tenant Change the Locks in Massachusetts?

A Massachusetts tenant may be able to change their own locks, so long as they receive permission from their landlord in advance. However, current commonwealth laws do not indicate an opinion one way or the other on this topic. Tenants may request that their landlord perform a lock change on their behalf if they supply proof of their domestic violence victim status, however.
