Massachusetts Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template

Updated August 07, 2023

The Massachusetts Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template describes property rental arrangements in a document which will act as a binding contract on its participants. This effect is provided by a signature of the participating Lessors and Lessees at the end of the document. The agreement itself is broken up into twenty-seven sections. These sections will describe the terms and conditions of the agreement each party is agreeing to adhere to for the duration of its lifetime. Some sections will contain standard information and require little to no attention while others will require definitions to be entered.

This residential contract will be adherent to Massachusetts General Laws Part II, Real and Personal Property and Domestic Relations. It will allow for attachments noting additional agreements made between Lessor and Lessee to be included under its power. So long as these additional agreements are documented clearly or presented with the lease at the same time to both parties. It should be noted that Massachusetts State Law will supersede any additional agreements or waivers attached regardless of the circumstances. This includes any waivers that would force a Landlord or Tenant to give up their basic rights or put them in a position of behaving in an unlawful manner.
