The judgment included 'lost rent' through 2015, tenant moved in in the last few months.
It sat vacant for around 14 months, so 14 x 2670 + interest + atty fees should have equaled less than $50k. They arrived at $110k +/-.
Correct. Judgment states that they could NOT rent the property, that they had been trying repetedly and there were no 'bites'.
He has an affidavit dated 6/19/13 stating that 'as of the date of this affidavit, unit has NOT been rented'.
It was mailed to us on the 27th of June.
Now somewhere between 6/19 and a few weeks ago, the property was rented, for sure.
What if the executed lease was shortly thereafter, could I petition the court to allow me access to communications between their new tenant and the landlords to establish if they intentionally delayed reletting the unit? Assuming I were to take this up on appeals of course. Since the summary final judgment was entered on July 24th... if I can show that the unit was rented PRIOR to that, I would be able entitled to.......?
Amending the judgment?
Having judgment thrown out requiring them to refile all of their motions?
Thanks for the help. No more questions on this I promise.
