Evicted Tenant Excused from Settlement Default and Restored to Possession
LVT Number: #29917
Landlord sued to evict tenant for chronic nonpayment of rent. Tenant consented to the entry of a judgment of possession in landlord's favor, with execution of the warrant stayed provided she pay her rent by the 10th day of the month during a two-year probationary period. When landlord didn't receive tenant's June 2018 payment on time, tenant was evicted and the court denied tenant's request to be reinstated to possession of the apartment.
