On or about June 4, 2018, Landlord filed an eviction action against tenant alleging, that the termination of tenants employment with landlord’s management company served as a basis to terminate her lease in a federally subsidized tax credit property.
Tenant had an employment contract with Professional Management, Inc., (PMI) is the property management company hired by the Landlord to manage the property.
The lease is an agreement between tenant and Golden Acres Redevelopment Phase II, Ltd., as Landlord.
The court granted summary judgment in favor of the tenant stating “it is axiomatic that an eviction cannot occur unless there is a lease violation or violation of Chapter 83, Fl. Stat. The cessation of Ms. Coleman’s employment with a third party (PMI) is not a violation of the lease agreement between the Defendants and Golden Acres and as such, Plaintiff cannot proceed with the instant eviction action. Plaintiff is proceeding on a contract that is not relevant or applicable to the lease agreement.”
