Eviction

questions & answers

Question: My property management company called me yesterday and informed me that I need to go to court for an eviction today.? I NEVER received any summon in the mail and was never severed. I made a partial payment($600 as opposed to the 668 rent amount) via our tenant portal last Friday with a prepaid debit card. My property management company told me yesterday that it hasn t posted even tho I confirmed with the prepaid company yesterday and the tenant portal shows it s cleared. Will a judge grant the eviction?

Answer: You must receive a proper eviction notice for nonpayment, then receive a summons and complaint giving you notice of a court date before a judge can evict you. If the only notice you got of court is the call from the manager, there should not be an eviction. HOwever if you only paid part of the rent owed and have not made a special arrangement with the manager to pay the rest later, they can serve you with a non-payment notice and then court papers and get a new court date and the judge will likely evict you unless the full rent has been paid. If you are still in the property, you need to talk to the manager immediately to work out any past due amounts before all of the court action begins. Good luck!
