Landlord Not Required to Accept Back Rent Payments

July 27, 2017
LVT Number: #27834

Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The court ruled for landlord based on tenant's failure to appear in court but later vacated the default judgment. Tenant then agreed to pay landlord $7,000 by April 10, 2014, and landlord got a judgment of possession and an eviction warrant, which was conditionally stayed. Tenant then failed to make the agreed-upon payment and was evicted on May 2, 2014. The court denied requests from tenant to be restored to possession.
