Reading Couple Wins in Court Against Archstone Apartments

A Reading couple took Archstone Apartments to court for charging amenity fees, which are illegal under state law.

A federal court judge ruled that Bay State apartment communities violated state law with by charging nonrefundable amenity fees, reported the Boston Business Journal.

A Reading couple filed a law suit against Archstone Apartments for charging them an amenity fee of $475 for use of the pool, outdoor grill and gym at its Reading complex.

“Archstone Reading exceeded the charges allowed by the Security Deposit Statute,” said U.S. District Court Judge William Young, according to the Boston Business Journal.

Young approved the case for class action status, which may end up costing Archstone thousands, maybe millions in refunds to tenants, according to the Boston Business Journal.
