Yes, you need to respond to the tenant, in writing, within 7 days responding to their issues. After that, the ball is in their court.
If the amount is less than $5000, they can sue in small claims, if they choose.
If the amount (including treble damages) is more than $5,000 but less than $10,000, they would need to sue in the county court for the county where the property is located.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
