Tenant did not deposit the rent and bond payment. Do I need to wait until the case goes to Denton county? If not how can I gain possession of the property. Rule 749b, Texas Rules of Civil Procedure? I don't want to fall behind the mortgate payment.
Yes, I do have the judgement in my favor. Tenant failed to pay the bond. He filed the affidavit of pauper due to his job loss. He did not deposit the bond. I did not contest the appeal. He failed to deposit the rent in the court. My case was in justice of peace in Roanoke but since tenant failed to deposit the rent and I did not contest the appeal, justice of peace forwarded my case to the Denton county.
Does the writs of possion need to be approved by the justice of peace?
After talking to you today, I went to the Justice of peace but they did not allow me to file the wirts of possession. They still have the file but they told me that they will send the file to Denton county and Denton county court will respond to me. I guess, I have to wait until new year.
