Is Massachusetts a “Landlord Friendly” State?

Massachusetts is not usually considered a “landlord friendly” state. That is because this commonwealth puts several key limitations on how much a landlord can charge a new tenant, including for security deposits and ancillary fees. Massachusetts landlords are not limited by any commonwealth-wide rent control policies, though, so they are freer to charge rent as they see fit.
