Landlord Must Send Tenant a Notice to Cure in Nuisance Case
LVT Number: #30868
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for committing or permitting a nuisance in his apartment by pouring or allowing a noxious liquid believed to be chlorine to leak on the floor, down radiator pipes, and along window framing. Landlord also claimed that tenant made loud noises.
Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case because landlord didn't send tenant a notice to cure before sending a lease termination notice and therefore failed to state a cause of action.
