The new law creates an automatic $125,000 protection on all homes that do not have a homestead declaration filed at the Registry of Deeds. The law still provides a $500,000 homestead protection for all homeowners who file a declaration at the Registry of Deeds. If you filed a homestead declaration prior to March 16, 2011, your $500,000 protection will continue to apply. Thus, there is no need to re-file your homestead declaration due to these statutory changes. The Massachuetts Secretary of State provides an informative review of the new law on their website.
