Elderly, Disabled Tenant Granted Six-Month Delay of Eviction
LVT Number: #30414
Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance based on the condition of her apartment. Tenant was elderly, was granted a life estate when her family sold the building to landlord, and had an Article 81 guardian appointed by another court. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement providing for regular apartment cleanings and giving landlord monthly access to perform extermination services. The agreement also said that if tenant violated its terms within 15 months, landlord could return to court for a hearing on whether there had been a breach.
