Fire in Tenant's Apartment Wasn't Result of Any Objectionable Conduct
LVT Number: #27685
Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance. They signed a settlement agreement in court that put tenant on probation for 18 months during which tenant agreed not to bang or kick neighbors’ doors, play loud music, verbally abuse building residents or employees, and not to throw things from her apartment balcony. Landlord later claimed that tenant breached the agreement based on a fire in tenant’s apartment.
