If you are a tenant facing an eviction in Massachusetts, the Eviction Storage Law:

  • Requires that your property be stored in a licensed public warehouse;
  • Gives you the right to choose a particular licensed public warehouse within 20 miles of where you were renting;
  • Requires that your property be inventoried before being put in storage and that you be told who is storing your property; and
  • Gives you one-time access to remove items of primarily personal or sentimental value free of charge.
