Supportive Living Facility Properly Denied Entry to Occupant
LVT Number: #28308
Occupant sued program operator, claiming unlawful entry and detainer, after the operator denied him entry to a room he shared in a supportive living facility for people with substance abuse problems. The court ruled for occupant, finding that he was a tenant and that operator must start a summary proceeding in housing court to remove him. The operator appealed and won. In a "Resident Attestation," occupant acknowledged that he had no tenancy rights. Landlord claimed that he was a licensee, not a tenant.
