Tenant Claims He Wasn't Served and Didn't Sign Agreement

LVT Number: #24825

Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The court granted a default judgment in landlord's favor based on tenant's failure to appear in court. Tenant later asked the court to vacate the default. He claimed that he didn't live in the apartment, that he didn't sign a prior settlement agreement with landlord, and that landlord didn't properly deliver the nonpayment petition in the first place. The court ruled for tenant and ordered the case to be reopened. Landlord appealed and won.
