Tenant Cured Lease Violation by Getting Rid of Two Pit Bulls
LVT Number: #30160
Landlord sued to evict tenant for keeping pit bull dogs in her apartment without landlord's permission. The court ruled for landlord based on tenant's failure to appear in court. The court later denied tenant's request to vacate the default, since tenant didn't deny harboring the dogs, and gave tenant 10 days to cure in order to avoid eviction. Tenant later asked the court to permanently stay the eviction warrant because she had removed the dogs. Landlord claimed that tenant still had a dog in her apartment.
