Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Basically they are accusing you of have an unauthorized occupant. Is that correct?
What you would need to do is to provide evidence that he is not an occupant to the housing authority/landlord. The methods to prove this would be a signed statement by him, providing a copy of his drivers license or state ID that shows an address other then the address you reside at. There are additional documents that you can use as evidence. This is the link http://www.masslegalhelp.org/understanding-your-lease-in-public-housing. If you can show that he is not an occupant you cannot be evicted. Please see section 21 at http://www.masslegalhelp.org/understanding-your-lease-in-public-housing
He can write a statement saying he is not residing at your address as well as the other forms of proof I included in the link. See section 21. If he cannot furnish the required proof you may need to have him use a P.O. Box so you are not in jeopardy of eviction.
