I received an order granting me writ of possession August. 7

Customer Question

I received an order granting me writ of possession August. 7 2015
Since that time my tenant has paid one months rent. Do I need to get another writ

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If this was obtained back in August, why was the tenant not removed and allowed to continue to stay?

It's my ex and his daughter and I just couldn't put their things on the street. Studio right but now I realize he s not going to ever leave and I want out

Thank you for the additional information. Yes, if you accepted rent after the writ was issued, the court would likely view this as a new tenancy, month to month and would require you to evict them again and obtain another writ of possession. I know it is not ideal but a result is accepting rent AFTER the fact.
