About this Website
UpToCode is a free website that gives tenants the power to solve landlord problems. It’s funded by the national Legal Services Corporation and Massachusetts nonprofits.
UpToCode includes a translated and easy to read English version of the Massachusetts Sanitary Code, the law that lists the requirements that Massachusetts landlords must follow. It helps tenants:
- discover their rights under the law,
- report problems to their landlord, a city housing inspector, or the court,
- get a court order to enforce repairs or to get compensation for illegal landlord actions.
MADE: UpToCode was originally authored by Quinten Steenhuis in 2021 in partnership with Massachusetts Law Reform Institute as part of the COVID Eviction Legal Help Project legal services component.
“MADE: UpToCode” includes code from the Document Assembly Line project.
