None payment eviction
by Anonymous on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 @11:14
I hired an Attorney to take my tenant to court for none payment rather than eviction (although eviction is what I really wanted) I was advised that none payment proceedings is the faster way to get a tenant out who wants to suck the blood out of me by freeloading for months. All went well in court the tenant must pay within a certain time, however if he does not pay I could evict him by getting the Marshall to come and throw him out. After the court proceedings my attorney wanted me to give him the Marshall’s fee immediately…..I hesitated because I wanted to give myself sometime to put together some money since I was broke after hiring him. I told him I would contact him after a few days, his response was that he need to put in for the Marshall right away because the process could take some time and he does not trust my tenant for a minute. I appreciate his advice/concern but I was wondering if this is something I could do on my own without having to get my Attorney involved again and spend extra money? God knows hiring him has cost me. My question is – should my tenant default on his payment can I request the Marshall without having to go back to my attorney since the court already have all the records, and what would be needed from me to do so? Thanks so much for your advice!
