    We lived here for 3 years and really enjoyed it! The team was very responsive with maitenance. Having a weight room was very convenient. We also enjoyed the location on the trail.

    4.5/5 John H. on Jul 20, 2020

    We have been living at Linea for over two years. We have nothing but great things to say about our time here. It has been a wonderful experience from the start. The maintenance, amenities and services are always excellent and there is never a need to ask twice. I am very active so having bikeway in my back yard is an added bonus! plus, it is a 10 minute walk to Davis Square, one of my favorite spots.

Generally, South Medford is the most popular area among renters, with rentals with four or more bedrooms that are close to lifestyle amenities and transit options. Meanwhile, other apartments in Medford are located along Interstate 93, providing access to Boston and surrounding areas. Notably, Massachusetts law protects renters by limiting the security deposit to one month’s rent, which has to be kept in a separate, interest-bearing account.

Additionally, there is no limit to the amount of rent that the landlord can increase, but 30 days prior notice is required before doing so.
