Landlord Entitled to Additional Month's Rent
LVT Number: 11954
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The court ruled for landlord and awarded it 45 months' back rent. Landlord appealed, seeking correction of a computation error and prejudgment interest. The appeals court ruled for landlord. The lower court mistakenly left out one month's rent in its calculation of the total amount due landlord. And landlord was entitled to prejudgment interest on the money judgment.
