Good Morning

Yes they can. If they have judgement from the court they can start the bankruptcy process if they want to go down that path or get a possession order to sell the house from the court.

If you wish to stop this and you have a defence and allege you do not owe the money you can go to court and request they set aside the judgement so you can defend their claim.
If not you are best to organise to pay off the debt with them so they do not take it further

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.

Regards
Leon

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
