For anyone who has ever lived in Boston, September 1st is the day when most Bostonians avoid the roads if they are not moving. August 31st is the day that most Boston leases expire, and September 1st is the day that most Boston leases starts. So, September 1st is a massive moving day for anyone living in Cambridge, Somerville, Boston, Allston, Brighton, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, etc.
For all those of you Bostonians who moved this weekend, congratulations! You’re done! But, you should know your rights as a tenant.
