Landlord v. Tenant: March 2018
Court Upholds Tenant’s Agreement to Temporarily Relocate During Construction
Tenant sued landlord, claiming that tenant’s temporary relocation agreement was void as it improperly waived tenancy benefits. Tenant claimed that she was forced out of her apartment for landlord to use as a staging area to complete work on a penthouse above her. She said landlord convinced her she wouldn’t be safe if she stayed in the apartment.
