Can I fight an eviction that claims I did not pay the rent?
You can defend against eviction for these reasons:
- You never got the 3-Day Notice
- The amount in the Notice was not right
- The Notice had incorrect dates or was for an amount that was not rent
Even if you can defend, you must deposit your rent due with the Clerk of Court. If you do not, you will likely lose your case without going to court.
