ESSEX COUNTY - LANDLORD/TENANT

Litigation

TJ experienced some health issues that caused her financial hardship. TJ relied on Temporary Rental Assistance to pay rent for a few months and ended up falling behind on her rent. TJ’s landlord sued to evict her. TJ was able to secure rent from a charitable agency, however, her landlord failed to cash the check from the agency. According to TJ, at a prior hearing, a judge instructed the landlord to return the uncashed check so that the agency could issue a new one. TJ also says that the lack of heat last winter is also being raised as a Marini issue.
