Termination Notice Didn't Specify Rules Violated
LVT Number: 8429
Landlord sued to evict tenant for illegally maintaining a washing machine in her apartment. Landlord's notice to cure and termination notice stated that tenant had violated her lease, DHCR regulations, and HUD regulations. The court ruled against landlord and dismissed the petition. Landlord's notices didn't specify which of the many rules and regulations of the DHCR and HUD tenant had supposedly violated. Landlord's notices were, therefore, improper.
