Owner Can't Terminate Resident's Lease without Good Cause
Facts: In April 2011, a resident signed a lease for a subsidized unit under the Loan Management Set-Aside (LMSA) program. Under the LMSA program, the resident’s initial lease term, and any renewal term, must be for at least one year.
On July 10, 2014, the owner notified the resident that her lease was being terminated. The owner alleged that a guest of the resident engaged in criminal activity. The owner filed an eviction lawsuit and later voluntarily dismissed the case against the resident prior to the trial date.
