Tenant Didn't Prove Payment of Rent Arrears
LVT Number: #24642
Landlord sued to evict tenant for nonpayment of rent. The court ruled for landlord, entered a judgment, and issued an eviction warrant. Tenant later asked the court to delay execution on the warrant. The court ruled against tenant. Tenant claimed that he met with landlord and tendered $6,300 in cash. He said landlord promised to give him a receipt. Landlord claimed that when he met tenant, tenant offered only $4,000, which landlord refused because it wasn't the full amount of the judgment. Tenant appealed and lost. The lower court didn't believe tenant.
