Description and Holding Information
General Court. Act providing for remedies for landlords and tenants, 1826
An act providing further remedies for landlord and tenant, 1826. If an occupant was living in a building illegally, had been given notice to vacate,
and ignored it, the owner could file a complaint with a Justice of the Peace. The form for a summons to appear was included in the act. If the
defendant actually appeared and lost, he had to leave the premises and pay court costs. Either party could appeal to the Court of Common Pleas. The
defendant had stand surety and pay all back rent for the case to proceed. The defendant could not question the legitimacy of the title to the property.
If the proper papers were not filed in a timely manner, the decision of the lower court stood. The final section required three months notice by
either the landlord or tenant to vacate a property. However, if rent were not paid, only fourteen days notice was required. (Digitized from a microfilm
copy of title originally held by the Massachusetts State Library).
