Tenants' Rights and Resources Notification Ordinance Effective 10-14-20 furthers Efforts to Maintain Housing Stability

The Tenants' Rights and Resources Ordinance, Chapter 8.71 of the Cambridge Municipal Code, effective 10-14-20, was established to inform and educate both residential tenants and landlords as well as management companies, realtors, and all others involved in renting and leasing residential dwelling units in the City of Cambridge of their rights and responsibilities as a landlord or tenant.

The purpose of the Ordinance is to ensure that housing information and resources are widely disseminated and that best practices are implemented at the start of and throughout tenancies in order to maintain housing stability for the City’s residents, neighborhoods, and community.
