I am in Massachusetts and in March of this year myself and my partner purchased a property - a three family home. As a part of our mortgage agreement we are supposed to be living in the house (was purchased as owner occupied). In March we served the eviction notice to the tenants in the third floor apartment. After speaking to them, we extended the notice from 30 days to 90 days due to the tenant being re-located in the same manner from his work property and his wife being pregnant. The 90 days is up on the 16 of June and in speaking with these tenants they have no intention of being out by that date. We want to know where we stand in evicting them (does that initial notice still hold eventhough we extended it or do we need to reserve?). The other concern is that the apartment they are living in has not been de-leaded and they now have a baby living there that was not born yet at the time of the original eviction. Legally where do we as landlords stand with this situation. The last question is would my partner and I be ok to represent ourselves if we do go to court with these tenants or would we end up over our heads with some of the complications of this situation and do we have a strong case do to the mortgage situation or is it just as difficult to evict someone no matter the circumstances?
