Tenants' Claim of Financial Hardship, Health Risks Delays Landlord's Recovery of Unit

LVT Number: #31287

Landlord obtained a building at a public auction, then sought a writ of assistance to remove tenants of one apartment. Tenants argued that the sale was made "subject to any rights of tenants or persons in possession," and asked the court to delay any writ or enforcement of any judgment against them. Tenants relied on the Governor's Executive Order 202.66. Landlord in turn asked for payment of use and occupancy from January 2021 forward, and for the period between March 1, 2020, and Dec. 21, 2020.
