Yes, it is. At this point, the landlord can choose whether or not to drop the eviction if they had already served 3 days notice prior to filing, and the original amount has not been paid.
If so, then they can ask for extra money to drop the lawsuit. If it is not paid, they can still evict based on the original non-payment.
At court, the Judge will be primarily concerned with two questions:
1) Was a three day notice prior to filing for eviction given? If yes, then
2) Does the landlord accept payment now? If no, then
3) Eviction is granted.
However they are exaggerating when it comes down to 3 days and the sheriff coming to evict. This is done via a Writ, and normally takes about 1-2 weeks at least (if the tenant has not relocated by themselves by that time).
Please note: If I tell you simply what you wish to hear, this would be unfair to you. I need to be honest with you and sometimes this means providing information that is not optimal. Negative ratings are reserved for experts who are rude or for erroneous information. Please rate me on the quality of my information; do not punish me for my honesty.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
