Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!
please clarify what it is you want t know about this situation, thank you.
Typically one cannot disconnect without court order. If you proceed with the eviction, that could be raised in defense. You can proceed nonetheless but obviously would be better if you work out a settlement, perhaps agreeing to a reduction in balance if tenant vacates promptly and issues a release.
Then I see no problem with going to court.
You can of course still try to negotiate a settlement, but it is only through a court order that you can otherwise secure the outcome you seek. Practically, a local eviction lawyer can expedite the process and may be able to get a money judgment for any arrears. Kindly rate me 5 stars.
thank you in advance for taking a moment to rate me.
