Vermont House Wasn't Tenant's Primary Residence
LVT Number: #24452
Landlord sued to evict rent-stabilized tenant for nonprimary residence. The trial court and first appeals court ruled for landlord. Tenant appealed again and won. Tenant moved into the studio apartment in 1980. In 2006, landlord refused to renew tenant's lease, claiming that she lived in a Vermont cabin. Tenant had a Vermont driver's license, and her car was registered there. After Sept. 11, 2001, tenant wrote to landlord that she would be staying in Vermont temporarily due to the attacks and wanted to receive her rent bill there.
