Resident Evicted for Repeated Minor Violations
Facts: An owner sought to evict a resident from a HUD-subsidized apartment for material lease violations. A code enforcement officer for the city appeared as witness for the owner and testified that, after receiving a police-initiated complaint, he inspected the resident’s unit on Oct. 14, 2017. He observed minor problems, including roaches, a faulty smoke detector, a broken dishwasher, and the odor of cat urine. The issues were addressed, and the case was closed.
