A: A Massachusetts attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. Responsibility for the wall could depend on how the lease was written - it could be either or both. As a general matter, it would usually be the property owner who would be liable to kid or senior citizen in the situation you describe. Fines could depend on municipal laws. Good luck
