Chronic Nonpayment Isn't Nuisance
LVT Number: 12546
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nuisance based on chronic nonpayment of rent. The court ruled against landlord, and landlord appealed. The appeals court also ruled against landlord. Landlord didn't show that there were any ''aggravating circumstances'' in this case. The chronic nonpayment by itself couldn't be found to constitute a nuisance.
