Landlord/Tenant Law Appellate Court Opinion

by Booth, George


AC41920 - Josephine Towers, L.P. v. Kelly (Summary process; motion to open judgment; motion to dismiss; claim that plaintiffs served insufficient notice to quit; "In this summary process action, the defendant, Diana Kelly, appeals from the decisions of the trial court denying her motions to open the judgment and to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction. She contends that the court lacked jurisdiction and, thus, improperly denied her motions, because the plaintiffs, Josephine Towers L.P., and SHP Management Corporation, served an insufficient notice to quit. She argues that the notice to quit was insufficient to confer jurisdiction because (1) although a pretermination notice previously had been served, the notice to quit alleged new violations that had not been included in the prior pretermination notice, and (2) the notice to quit did not adequately allege a serious nuisance. We disagree and, accordingly, affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
