Application fees are one of those areas where inexperienced Massachusetts landlords follow common sense instead of the law, and pay penalties as a result.

Traditionally, when society speaks about or thinks of alimony, it has been given by Massachusetts men to their ex-wives. However, in the last few years, there has been an increase in the number of men requesting and receiving alimony.
