Customer: Well I am ready to negotiate term of payment with them

Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.

If they already have the judgment against you, then as you most likely know, they are within their rights to get the writ to have you evicted. That means that if they go for the writ, the judge will give it to them. That, in turn, means that if you are willing to now pay them in exchange for them not evicting you, you will have to approach them and negotiate terms. They are not obligated to negotiate with you, so you should probably approach them as soon as possible, and make your best offer to them. You could point out to them that if they work with you on this, they will not incur much more in attorney fees, which could save them money, and that their collection is guaranteed, because you will eventually pay it, or they can evict you later. Does this make sense?
