Landlord's Nuisance Claims for Tenant Smoking Were Too Vague
LVT Number: #30009
Landlord sued to evict tenant for violating a substantial obligation of her tenancy and for creating a nuisance. Landlord claimed that tenant failed to provide access for repairs and created a nuisance by smoking in the building. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case. She claimed that landlord's court petition was defective because it didn't sufficiently allege facts upon which its claims were based. The court agreed and dismissed the case.
