Re: Does eviction end tenant rent payments? by Anonymous on November 1, 2017 @01:53

Judges do not cancel leases, they either terminate possession or terminate both possession and the lease. In a slow rental market, a landlord could for example, just ask for possession and still hold the tenant liable for future rents as they become due until the lease terms end or the property is rerented. In most cases, a landlord just accepts the amount the court awards, such as up to two months rent as damages.

This is exactly my case! The judgement says that, the tenant either pays what he owed up to the judgement date to continue possession, or surrender the possession immediately but still owe current unpaid rent and utilities AND may still owe rents and damages coming after judgement date. It was not possible to have the total amount of damages and unpaid rents at the judgement date while tenant was still living in my house.
