Did Landlord Wait Too Long to Object to Tenant's Dog?
LVT Number: #30080
Landlord sued to evict tenant after discovering that tenant kept a dog in his apartment in violation of tenant's lease. Landlord and tenant signed a probationary settlement agreement. Tenant agreed that he would keep no dog in the apartment for a year and that, if he kept this agreement, the eviction case would be dropped. Landlord later claimed that tenant violated the agreement. Tenant, by that time, had gotten an attorney, who asked the court to vacate the settlement agreement.
