Landlord's Notices Didn't Comply with HUD Procedures
LVT Number: #30134
Landlord sued to evict HUD-regulated tenant for nonpayment of rent, seeking arrears of over $9,200. Tenant claimed that landlord's petition was defective because landlord terminated tenant's rent subsidy without proper notification under HUD regulations. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. Landlord argued that, despite delivery of three reminder notices, tenant failed to complete her annual recertification and her subsidy had been terminated. But landlord's three notices failed to comply with HUD Handbook procedures for terminating assistance.
