I received a summons to landlord tenant court for a motion for possesion in Washington DC, if all monies were paid on the agreement what would my defense be?
Bankruptcy Lawyer: Law Educator, Esq., Attorney replied 4 months ago

Thank you for your reply.

If you paid the money due in time, then you file a motion to dismiss for "accord and satisfaction" meaning you paid within the time given and cured the breach which is the basis for the suit for eviction. That would be your defense, accord and satisfaction.

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.
