Landlord v. Tenant: January 2018
Landlord Can Evict Tenant for Chronic Nonpayment of Rent
Landlord sued to evict tenant for chronic nonpayment of rent. Landlord and tenant signed a settlement agreement in court that put tenant on probation. Tenant then failed to pay rent on time in June 2015 and didn’t pay any rent between November 2015 and March 2016. Tenant also didn’t present any excuse for her default. The court ruled that landlord could proceed with eviction. Tenant appealed and lost.
