Hello. I rent a building to a small business in Massachusetts. This building is less than 1000 square feet and the business, a food mart, uses the entire premises. A friend of mine was shopping in the food store and noticed that the place isn't be kept up very well and that a small set of steps inside the store has a broken board. The lease says the tenant is supposed to make all repairs inside the building. When I talked to the guy about this he sent me a letter saying that I should make the repair, even though the lease says otherwise. If someone falls on that step and injures themselves can I be sued under MA law?
