Affidavit of Service Proves Court Papers Were Delivered
LVT Number: #24606
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. Although he filed an answer in court using the housing court's preprinted form, tenant claimed that he never received a copy of landlord's notice of petition. He asked the court to dismiss the case for this reason. The owner of the process serving company that served landlord's court papers testified in court that the individual process server who delivered the papers had left the company, moved out of state, and not responded to the owner's request to appear in court.
