LLF Secures Big Trial Win for Subsidized Landlord
The judge’s ruling in favor of the landlord in this matter covered sixty-one pages which was a brief summary of the proceedings that spanned five different court days over an extended period of time. The landlord sought possession of the premises after the tenant allowed an unauthorized occupant to reside in the premises who became combative with another resident in the community. As such behavior is a serious nuisance under CT law, the landlord sought to evict the tenant and regain possession of the premise. When the matter could not be settled to the landlord’s satisfaction, LLF prepare the matter for litigation, and litigate we did. The landlord supplied meaningful documentation and testimony and the LLF Legal Team managed the hearing, the exhibits, and the witnesses with calm conviction in pursuit of the landlord’s goals. The court conducted the trial over the course of four hearing days and the landlord’s investment of time and energy to protect their rights was rewarded by a ruling in its favor with obligations for the tenant to pay appropriate use and occupancy payments during the short stay period. The tenant vacated the premises and returned the keys in accordance with the court’s orders and order was restored in this pristine community.
