New Law

Connecticut Public Act 96-74 (1996)

RE: Tenant Damages

Section 1 (a) - A tenant is guilty of criminal damage of a landlord’s property in the first degree when, with intent to cause damage to tangible property of the landlord of the premises and having no reasonable ground to believe that he has a right to do so, he damages such property in an amount exceeding $1500.00.

(CLASS D FELONY)

Section 2 (a) - A tenant is guilty of criminal damage of a landlord’s property in the second degree when, with intent to cause damage to tangible property of the landlord of the premises and having no reasonable ground to believe that he has a right to do so, he damages such property in an amount exceeding $250.00. (CLASS A MISDEMEANOR)

The purpose of this Public Act is to simply clarify that the damages stemmed from a landlord - tenant dispute and that this charge should be applied when probable cause exists for an arrest.
