Tenant Evicted from Illegal Basement Apartment
LVT Number: 13325
Landlord sued to evict month-to-month tenant from an illegal basement apartment. The court ruled for landlord. Landlord showed that it owned the building, that the assessed value of the property was under $25,000, and that the building was a legal two-family house. There was no proof of tenant's claim that the building was a three-family house.
