In 1996, Mr. Ward published a treatise/ practice manual on the subject of landlord and tenant law: Massachusetts Landlord-Tenant Practice: Law and Forms. The book enjoys wide circulation at all Massachusetts law schools, law libraries and among judges and lawyers alike. The book moves the user easily from basic definitions of tenancies, step-by-step through the eviction and appeal process and into areas of landlord-tenant law the practitioner or judge will frequently encounter, such as housing discrimination, drug-related evictions and proper handling of security deposits.

The majority of the book is written in easy to understand prose suitable for property managers and landlords who are not lawyers. An updated version will be available shortly through this Website, in stores and through on-line book sellers. Return to this site in approximately ninety days to preview and purchase a copy of Massachusetts Landlord-Tenant Practice: Law and Forms.
