Dispossessory Warrant: I have paid the past due rent to my landlord, do I still need to come to court?

return to FAQs page

If you can verify with the Clerk's Office that the plaintiff has filed a dismissal of the case against you then you are not required to come to court. If you cannot verify that the case has been dismissed, then you may wish to come to court. Failure to do so puts you at risk of having a judgment entered against you for the past due rent and a writ of possession for your eviction.
