Dissenting voice: I got my start as a LL living in the middle floor of a 3 family. I ended up there because that unit was open when we bought it. I got all the noise from both above and below. I lived with it for 12 years and I would never choose to do that again, nor would I recommend it if it could be avoided.

I do agree with the other part though. There is a book called "Landlord's Legal Guide for Mass." that is a great resource. It has the forms you need as well as all the pertinent laws etc. (I don't know why it's so expensive on Amazon)

Thank you

I endorse all of those comments.

  • Credits checks are only $25-40 once you jump through some hoops. I've had 2 friends leave the business (sold their places) after renting to strings of bad tenants that they refused to credit check ("$25 is too much"). I've rejected seemingly great people who clearly had unpaid rent/evicts on their credit reports.

  • For a quick reference for laws and basic forms check out this book. Once again I'll note that most cities and towns have their own idoicentenratic bylaws.
