Predicate Notices Didn't State Grounds for Terminating Lease
LVT Number: #30366
Landlord sued to evict tenant after notifying him of a deterioration of the property's plumbing and sewage pipes that could lead to hazardous living conditions. The court granted tenant's request to dismiss the case since landlord's notice to quit and termination notice were defective. The notice to quit failed to allege any grounds that tenant breached his lease agreement. And landlord's termination notice referred to the tenancy as month-to-month even though tenant's lease hadn't expired.
