Landlord Tenant Law - Eviction Defense: Fraud


Blog Category:

A tenant can be evicted only if the landlord obeys the eviction process and if a Judge finds cause for eviction under the Anti-Eviction Act. A tenant can defeat an eviction complaint by showing the eviction process were not correctly followed, or that cause for eviction does not exist, or that the landlord has not met other duties under the law. This blog will address the defense of "Failure to Show Good Cause for Eviction and/or Fraud"

Failure to Show Good Cause for Eviction and/or Fraud

If the Complaint alleges facts that are false, they may be denied. The landlord must prove all counts alleged in the Complaint

If the facts shown by the landlord do not prove one of the limited grounds for eviction, the case must be dismissed, even if they prove something the landlord thinks should be enough to evict you. Evidence is key to present in court including court witnesses, photos, letters to or from the landlord, receipts, and any other evidence. 

Failure to conform to the requirments set forth above can be grounds for a defense to an eviction. If you are facing an eviction, contact the Landlord Tenant Attorneys at Fazzio Law, we are in your corner!
