The City of Boston is home to more than 40 universities and colleges. As such, it needs to be able to accommodate thousands of students moving into and out of it every year. Students moving into Boston should be aware of what the city has to offer and how the landlord/tenant relationship laws may differ from those in their hometown.
Make sure to familiarize yourself with your neighborhood right away when you move to town. This help you get your bearings and acquaint you with where the places you will want to visit and avoid may be. This can also help you begin mapping out any public transport routes available to you. Boston has robust public transportation and even a bike sharing system.
When you sign the lease for your Boston home, there are specific rules that your landlord will have to follow. Your landlord cannot charge you a pet fee, but can ask for a security deposit as well as your first and last months’ rent at the time of signature. As a renter, your landlord will be responsible for keeping the premises safe from dangerous conditions.
Boston is a wonderful city with a lot of history and culture. You will have a blast exploring everything the city has to offer!
