Tenant's Limited Failure to Provide Access for Extermination Didn't Create Nuisance
LVT Number: #27733
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for creating a nuisance by maintaining her apartment in an unsanitary condition and failing to provide access for the exterminator. Tenant claimed that there was insufficient grounds to claim nuisance. The court dismissed the case. The petition cited only one instance where tenant failed to arrange access with landlord and one instance where tenant failed to prepare the apartment for vermin treatment. This wasn't ongoing nuisance, and didn't show a chronic pattern of dangerous behavior.
