Tenant hardship notice to landlords

Under the eviction moratorium legislation recently passed by the Mass. Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Baker, landlords cannot: ) send a "Notice to Quit", b) initiate an eviction proceeding, c) evict a tenant, or d) charge late fees for rent payments that were missed or short due to the COVID-19 emergency.
HOWEVER, in order to activate this last protection, the tenant must send a written notice to the landlord within 30 days of the missed, late, or short payment, stating that the non-payment or partial payment of rent was due to a financial impact from the COVID-19 emergency.
