Corporate Landlord's Head Officer Can Be Named in Tenants' HP Proceeding

LVT Number: #30310

Tenants sued the building owner, its individual director, and the managing agent, seeking correction of Housing Maintenance Code (HMC) violations at the building. Tenants asked the court to direct several parties, including Steve Croman, as the individual who headed the owner entity, to correct the violations. Croman asked the court to dismiss the case as against him personally. He pointed out that a June 2018 consent decree governed management of the building, including correction of HPD violations. The court ruled against Croman.
