Tenant's adult daughter sued landlord, claiming illegal eviction. She claimed that she contacted landlord in early September 2020 and informed landlord that tenant had died and she wanted to clear up any back rent issues. The daughter had lived with tenant for many years and it was her only home. She went away for a few days and when she returned, the apartment locks had been changed. Landlord refused to give her keys to the new locks, and continued to refuse to restore her to possession.
