Boston (Mass.). Rental Housing Resource Center

 Organization

Historical note

Rent Control in Boston was ended by a state-wide referendum in 1994. The Rental Housing Resource Center was created by Mayor Thomas M. Menino in 1995 to provide advice, information, and assistance to Boston landlords and tenants who have problems or questions about rental housing issues. The Rent Equity Board consisting of five residents of the City appointed by the Mayor is responsible for carrying out the provisions of the Rental Housing Equity Ordinance. A Rent Board was first established in Boston by Chapter 11 of the Ordinances of 1970.
