Tenant Can't Cure Destructive Acts
LVT Number: 17466
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nuisance. Landlord claimed that tenant maliciously destroyed garage windows and glass dryer doors in the building's laundry room. Tenant then refused to pay for repairs. Tenant asked the court to dismiss the case without a trial. He claimed that he cured any lease violations. Landlord argued that the acts couldn't be taken back and, so, couldn't be cured. The court ruled against tenant. Tenant couldn't cure destructive acts retroactively.
