My tenant lives on my premises for four months and only paid for two months of rent so I proceeded with eviction. She responded to the court and applied for Temporary Stay of Execution of Judgment. Apparently she lied on her application for Temporary Stay of Execution of Judgment about her income. The persons she claims to be residing with her are also not consistent with her initial rental application that she submitted to me. She also claims that she and her spouse are disabled and they are caring for disabled children and grandchildren (their disabilities are never disclosed to me up until this point, and to me, they all look perfectly healthy)
I just received a copy of order for temporary stay (to July 16th) approved by the judge today. Originally, the lock out of property was scheduled to perform by the sheriff on June 19th, but the eviction process was stopped by the judge's order.
I have two questions: 1. What can I do to appeal for the judge's order and call it out to the judge that the tenant lied on her applications?
2. Can the tenant file another application for temporary stay after July 16th?
You need good legal advice. Choose an attorney experienced in evictions that is well known to your local court system. Take the original application with you to the first appointment, as well as the copy for temporary stay.
