The court order was for the tenant to pay the landlord the past due rent by a specific date or terminate the tenancy. There is no reason to return to court. The landlord should proceed with the marshal or the sheriff to complete the eviction. Understand, the landlord will be dealing with a disgruntled tenant for at least the next thirty (30+) days. If the tenant decides to pay the past due rent, advise the tenant that the landlord will be suing for attorney's fees and eviction costs (provided the lease allows for it).
Words cannot express my gratitude for all the helpful advice I’ve been given in regards to my situation. Thank you all so much! So, the date my tenant was given to make his first payment by the court was July 10th he brought the money to me short of the amount – I refused it because it was not the amount we and the court had agreed open, keep in mind this is the pattern he has been using for years until his balance ended up in the thousands, hence the reason for me taking him to court. He told me he will give me the balance today. Should I accept it or should I use this as my opportunity to begin the eviction process by applying for the Marshall? Would the court go in favor of him if he goes and says he gave me the full amount a day or two later and I refused it? Thanks
