: Can my landlord evict me for chronic nonpayment of rent based on a violation of a substantial obligation of my lease if all of the past due rent has been paid and my current rent has been paid on time?
: A total of 9 proceedings were commenced within a four year period resulting in judgments in favor of the landlord for payment of rent.
When you rented the apartment, you agreed to pay rent on a given schedule - typically, the first of each month. If you don't live up to that agreement, the landlord is within his right to take legal action against you.
: My attorney says my landlord has a strong case against me.
: Should I start looking for a different apartment or get a better lawyer?
Please. Listen to your attorney. But don't waste more money on lawyer's fees. You don't want to have the same problems at your new apartment, right ?
