Owner Waives Right to Evict Disruptive Resident by Recertifying Her Lease
Facts: An owner claimed that over a course of four years, a Section 8 resident was a major nuisance, harassing the neighbors, stealing packages, making excessive noise, and getting into fights. But all the while it accepted her rent. In November 2018, she was arrested on the premises and charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. A month later, the owner recertified her lease for another year. But in April 2019, the owner sent the resident an eviction notice for disturbing her neighbors and engaging in criminal activity in violation of her lease.
