Landlord Must Pay for Damage to Tenant's Personal Property
LVT Number: #29878
Tenant sued landlord for damage to her personal property, as well as reimbursement for missing property. Tenant had been evicted as a result of an eviction proceeding based on nonpayment of rent but claimed that she hadn't received notice before the eviction. She filed an order to show cause immediately, and the court at first directed landlord to let tenant into the apartment to remove her possessions. A bit later, landlord and tenant settled the case, and tenant was restored to possession. Tenant found some furniture moved by landlord had been damaged and some items were missing.
