My Tenant Filed An Answer To A Dispossessory Warrant Which I Filed Because She Did Not Pay The Rent.

The tenant is allowed to remain in the rental property until the dispossessory process is complete. A landlord can request that the court order the tenant to pay into court the rent and utility payments that become due, while the dispossessory process is pending. The amount of rent due can be shown by attaching a copy of the lease or evidence of past payments. The court will order the tenant to make payments into court which can then be distributed to the landlord. If the tenant fails to make payments, the court can order the tenant to be removed from the property.
