Live-In Aide Can’t Sue on Resident’s Behalf
Facts: A Section 8 resident lived with a live-in aide. Only the resident was on the lease. When the heating and air conditioning unit was damaged, the owner blamed the resident, threatening to evict her. In March 2016, the resident was served with a notice to vacate the property. Despite taking the resident to court, the owner didn’t evict her. But again in May 2016, the owner served the resident with an eviction notice, stating that her $81 portion of the rent wasn’t paid.
