How to Collect Your Landlord Tenant Money
The first step you must take is to file a Request for Transmittal Judgment. Your case will then be provided a civil case number, which is required for you to proceed with collections. Once you receive notice of a civil case number and notice that a trial judgment was entered, you can then proceed with collections as long as you wait the required number of days in order to allow for a defendant the opportunity to have the judgment vacated.
