Landlord Claimed Tenant Operated a Bakery in Apartment
LVT Number: #28585
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for creating a nuisance by renting rooms in her apartment on a short-term basis without landlord's consent and for illegal use of the apartment by operating a bakery. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case. Although landlord wasn't required to send tenant a notice to cure when the eviction claim was based on nuisance, landlord's termination notice was conclusory and speculative, and therefore insufficient for an eviction proceeding.
