Rent Demand Didn't Include Monthly Individual Breakdowns
LVT Number: #32746
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent, claiming that tenant owed a total of $9,283 based on monthly rent of $1,747. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case, claiming that the rent demand was defective. The court ruled for tenant. Landlord had failed to individually break down rent for each month that was allegedly due. Landlord's claim was dismissed, but the court kept the case on its calendar for consideration of tenant's affirmative defenses.
