Did the landlord say why they did not want to accept the rent? What county are you in?

no she didn't expect it. been trying to send u this paper
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm in Page county
Lawyer: Legal Expert Justin, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Was the paperwork filed by an attorney? If so, you should contact him/her and ask if they would still be willing to accept payment.

i need your email again so i can send it
Lawyer: Legal Expert Justin, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot you can do, other than hope that they will be willing to accept payment and drop the eviction proceedings. You may want to consult a lawyer in your county.

Hello. Do you still require assistance? I noticed that you chose to opt out of the question.

Justin yes I still need help. But I'm not getting what I need. I have to be in court next week and because of my health I dnt need this. I'm being basically evicted and I dnt understand why. I was paying more then I needed to pay.
Lawyer: Legal Expert Justin, Attorney replied 4 months ago

The image you uploaded is too blurry to read. Can you take a better picture?

You are being evicted because you did not pay your rent on time. There isn't much else that can be done other than trying to negotiate with the landlord's attorney and seeing if they will accept the late rent payments and drop the eviction proceedings.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.
