Landlord/Tenant Appellate Court Opinion

by Zigadto, Janet


AC43695 - Freidburg v. Kurtz ("In this landlord-tenant dispute, the defendants, Jo-Ellen Kurtz, Andrew Kurtz, and Janice Levy, appeal from the judgment of the trial court, rendered after a bench trial, in favor of the plaintiff, Terrance Mills Freidburg. On appeal, the defendants claim that the court erred (1) in rendering judgment against them for damages to the property that they leased from the plaintiff without determining its age and condition at the commencement of the tenancy and the relative wear and tear of the items at the termination of the tenancy and (2) in failing to render judgment for the defendants on their counterclaim concerning their security deposit that they paid to the plaintiff when they entered into an agreement to lease the property. We affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
