Unfortunately when you owe money / are behind on payments they CAN still send it to collections if you're paying it in installments - unless they agree to a payment plan and then you'd want to get assurances that they won't send to collections if you stay up to date on your payments.

can i just start making payments no matter what they say and what about my repairs don't they have to do the work that was not installed property?
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

You can start making payments but they can either choose not to accept them or to still send it to collections.

And, if they won't make the repairs you *can* sue them for that.

You can also sue them in small claims court for your money back - which would get their attention.

Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 4 months ago

You can sue them for what you paid and you can include time off work and other 'inconveniences'...

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.
