Class Action Investigation: Massachusetts Residential Landlords Collecting “Amenity Fees” & Other Illegal Up-Front Fees

Have you been charged any of the following fees before moving into a building?
 
  • “Amenity fee”
  • “Move in fee”
  • “Pet fee”
  • “Application fee”
  • “Maintenance fee”
  • “Credit/screening fee”
  • “Holding fee”
  • New “Community fee” (As of November 2012, Equity Residential is allegedly charging a “community fee,” due some point after the first month)
 
If so, your rights may have been violated, and you may be owed financial compensation.  If you want to talk to an attorney about your legal rights, please call me, Attorney Preston W. Leonard at (617)329-1295, or see this post to learn more about a recent class action lawsuit concerning amenity fees in Massachusetts.
 
Note: If you have paid any of the up-front fees described above in the past 4 years, even if it was not to an Equity Residential or Archstone building, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
