Re: do you count your house as the RE part of your allocation?

A tenancy-at-will means EITHER party can give 30 days' notice for no reason whatsoever, as far as I understand it.
In MA possession is 9/10's of the law.


You can give 30 days' notice to raise the rent, too. Generally there are no limits as to how much, unless you are in some kind of gov't. subsidized tenant situation.
Hasn't happened to me ... but I heard of other landlords who tried this - as a way to evict - and had the increases thrown out in court. Judge said it was above market price.

All my units are at market (1000-1200/mo). Simply not worth the hassle of trying to throw out paying tenants (it's enough trouble getting rid of the non-payers). And the rents pay my bills.... so I wait.
