Hi - sorry that I'm just seeing this.

Yes, a landlord can cancel or withdraw the claim if the tenant pays all fees and expenses due. That would just be something left up to the discretion of the landlord......but if the payments were accepted and the payment was a full satisfaction of the amount claimed, the landlord should not have much of a choice.

If there are any reservations made by the landlord as to the payment, the affect of that would depend on what the reservations are.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
