Triple damages for Misrepresentations by Landlord in 93A response letter

In response to my demand letter my landlord, through his atty, made over a dozen misrepresentations as to the facts as his defense/denial of liability. This is based on his own/his property managers written correspondence throughout the tenancy and matter complained of ie willfully not providing heat and unreasonable construction. Are there separate penalties for doing so against either the landlord or his atty?

Triple damages

Not a lot of information in your question, but the answer is likely the same regardless of the underlying facts.  If the landlord has violated 93A of another law that establishes triple damages, and then fails to address the issue adequately in his response to your demand letter, that failure will be a big factor when a judge considers the case.  Follow this link for more info about triple damages for violations of 93A in MA.
