Vexatious litigation is a legal term that refers to the practice of filing multiple lawsuits or legal claims without any substantial merit or genuine cause.

In the context of landlord-tenant law, vexatious litigation can have significant consequences for both landlords and tenants. This article explores the concept of vexatious litigation in the landlord-tenant context and its potential impact.

Key Elements of Vexatious Litigation in Landlord-Tenant Cases

Repetitive Lawsuits: Vexatious litigants often file numerous legal actions against their landlord or tenant, often on the same or similar grounds. This repetition can be a clear indicator of vexatiousness.

Lack of Merit: Vexatious litigation typically lacks a valid legal basis. The claims may be frivolous, unfounded, or brought solely to harass the opposing party.

Abuse of Legal Process: Vexatious litigants may misuse legal procedures to cause delays, add unnecessary complications, or burden the other party with legal expenses.

Impact on Landlords.

Financial Burden: Defending against vexatious litigation can be costly in terms of legal fees and court-related expenses.

Time-Consuming: Dealing with repetitive lawsuits can be time-consuming, diverting a landlord’s attention from their property management duties.

Stress and Anxiety: Vexatious litigation can be emotionally draining for landlords, causing stress and anxiety.
