Disabled Tenant Who Caused Fires Given Probation Period as Reasonable Accommodation
LVT Number: #30086
Landlord sued to evict tenant based on breach of tenant's lease and nuisance. The trial court found that tenant committed a nuisance by engaging in a pattern of conduct that led to two fires in three months. But the court delayed issuance of an eviction warrant for six months to give tenant a "reasonable accommodation" for a disability under the Fair Housing Act.
