Tenant Presented No Excusable Default to Vacate Eviction Warrant

LVT Number: #30513

Landlord sued to evict tenant after NYCHA determined that tenant's chronic rent delinquency violated her lease. The court ruled for landlord after an inquest, but the warrant clerk denied landlord's request for an eviction based on minor defects in the court papers. The court granted landlord's requests to correct the defects, including the ZIP code listed on the petition. Tenant later asked the court to vacate the default judgment and warrant.
