Many tenants are having difficulty paying rent, and are at risk of being evicted now that the eviction moratorium has been lifted in Massachusetts. If you are having difficulty paying rent and are at risk of being evicted, you have certain rights and may be able to prevent or delay being evicted. Since the process can be complicated, if you find yourself in this position, we recommend you contact an attorney right away.
The City of Chelsea, through the Department of Housing and Community Development and Law Department, launched a Legal Housing Clinic to assist residents facing eviction or other housing issues under the expiration of the Massachusetts Eviction Moratorium.
The creation of Chelsea Housing Clinic was made possible through a contract between the City of Chelsea and Community Legal Services, Inc. Our purpose is to aid Chelsea residents with Housing Court issues such as pandemic-related non-payment eviction proceedings and pre-litigation mediation events.
Community Legal Services, Inc. (CLS) is the first and only Chelsea-based legal services non-profit organization. The services provided through the Chelsea Housing Clinic are for Residents of Chelsea only.
