Landlord Doesn't Prove Tenant Violated Probationary Stipulation
LVT Number: #29796
Landlord sued to evict tenant for creating a nuisance. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement in court, which put tenant on probation for one year. Tenant specifically agreed not to smoke in the building's common areas, not to leave personal property in the building hallways for over 24 hours, not to ring doorbells of other apartments and then walk away, and not to cause unreasonable noise in the building. Landlord later returned to court, claiming that tenant had violated the probation agreement.
