We're lay people. I can't figure out all the details from your post, but a couple of ideas would be that anything they pay goes to late fees first and then rent, so they still haven't paid rent.
Some JP don't like late fees and especially if they consider them unreasonable.
So who appealed...landlord or tenant?
If they're late this month, they'll be late next month, so you can probably file a new suit then.
They'll get the message.
Also see if you can move the venue to a court far away from the unit.
Find a good real estate attorney to answer all of your questions.
They are not volunteering to leave and no settlement could be reached so we went to trial and they requested a jury trial.
The question is in regards to rents from here forward.
On his books, as of today the 20th or the month they owed $1875 and they had tendered a $1300 Money Order. The Eviction process did not deal in Late Fees. Simply the Rent.
So today he is still owed $575 in Late Fees and has been awarded rent through today.
If they get out before they have to be put out he is OK as he has Security Deposit to cover unpaid Late Fees as well as potential damages. But if they wait out the process, do we stop the clock on the late fees today? Another question I need to ask is what can be recovered from the Security Deposit? After Damages to the Property are repaired, the unit is cleaned is he allowed to deduct the costs of re-letting the unit as well?
