Mr. and Mrs. GP were renting half of a duplex in the Metro West area. At the end of their lease, they made arrangements to move to a new location. After moving their landlord refused to return the damage deposit claiming that there were damages when in fact there were none. Through the efforts of this office, a Complaint Under the Consumer Protection Act Chapter 93A was brought. It was discovered during our investigation that the Landlord had failed to properly handle the damage deposit as required by law. This eventually resulted in our clients receiving a judgment of three times the original damage deposit ($4,500.00) plus all our attorney’s fees and costs were ordered to be paid for by the landlord.
