Landlord Didn't Name Tenant's Mother in Case
LVT Number: #24715
Landlord sued to evict low-income housing tenant for breach of a substantial obligation of his tenancy based on chronic nonpayment of rent. Landlord had sued to evict tenant three times in recent years. In the last case, tenant was reinstated by the court after eviction upon payment of $13,000 in arrears. Tenant failed to appear in court this time, but his mother appeared. She claimed that she had succeeded to the tenancy in June 2012, that landlord failed to name her as a party to this proceeding, and that there were no prior nonpayment actions against her.
