(June 29, 2017) Attorney David W. White was interviewed by NBC Boston on the potential legal options ahead for buyers of condos destroyed by a massive blaze in Dorchester. The fire went up on Wednesday, just a day before a fire inspection was reportedly scheduled.
The six-story Treadmark building had 83 units, including 32 for home ownership and 51 for affordable rentals. It was located in the Ashmont section of Boston’s Dorchester neighborhood.
News outlets report residents planned to move in as early as July and August, but are now left with hard decisions following the tragedy.
“Whenever you have a big fire like this especially when you’re so close to completion, hundreds of lives are turned inside out,” said White, a past president of the Massachusetts Bar Association.
