Rent Demand Didn't Set Forth Good Faith Estimate of Rent Due
LVT Number: #29943
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case, arguing that the rent demand sent before starting the case didn't give a good faith estimate of rent arrears. The court ruled for tenant and dismissed the case. The rent demand sought rent claimed due for November 2017 through March 2018. Yet the court petition sought rent back to June 2015. Landlord couldn't correct any errors in the predicate notice.
