Testimony was provided to the Joint Committee on Housing in a Public Hearing on May 19, 2009 for House Bill 1232, requiring just cause evictions, among other foreclosure bills. These bills were eventually submitted as "An Act Relative to Mortgage Foreclosures" and adopted as Chapter 258 of the Laws of 2010.  Section 6 of c. 258, prohibiting post-foreclosure evictions of tenants except for just cause, was codified as G.L. c.186A and went into effect August 7, 2010.
