My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and thank you for using jusatnswer.com. Give me a bit and I will draft you an answer.
If you pay what is owed plus fees (the landlord can charges you costs for filing the eviction as well), the landlord must accept it if they based the eviction on unpaid rent. So if you the landlord sued you for eviction based on nonpayment of rent, you have a right to "redeem" or save your right to stay in the property by paying you all of the money that you owe the landlord as of the day the payment is made. The Judge calls the amount of money you owe the "Trans-Lux" amount, which is a shorthand way of saying the amount of money the tenant owes you in order to bring the account current. So yes, you can bring the account current but you will have to pay past rent, late fees and court costs, the landlord then cannot move forward with the eviction.
