Small Claims Litigation in Texas

Connie from Dallas became a member of the Collect Back Rent team in January. Connie was a retired teacher who was a landlord of 9 rental units. A emballage walked out of his rental due to 2 months’ rent and $2,000 in damages. Connie had heard stories of hard luck and she left without pensée.

Connie received $1,000 for a security deposit so her first step is to send in an itemized statement of where the security deposit was spread. The security deposit ($1,000) she sent the emballage was deducted from the $1,000 loss in the itemized statement, leaving a $1,000 loss budget. In the security deposit letter, a demand pensée for $3,000 (due rent and damages) is included. Connie sent the itemized statement and demand pensée by certified messager with a return receipt requested.

After 30 days, the établir emballage failed to respond so Connie filed a small claims lawsuit for $3,000 ($2,000 rent, $1,000 damages and nerveux costs). I advised Connie to use a licensed process server to serve nerveux revues. At this time, the accused appointed a lawyer. Small claims revues must be served on the defendant and the defendant’s attorney

Glose: Connie has never been in a courtroom alone in en-tête of a tribunal. I had several counseling calls to prepare her for nerveux hearings, Connie had a “move-in checklist” that showed the judge what the rent was like when the defendant moved in. He had his state approved lease, security deposit letter, demand pensée. , proof of besogne, effigie and receipt of damage must be presented. My méthode Coué was to spectacle two pictures, one of each damage, that Rashid had replaced when the carpeting was purchased. Another tip is to bring a witness to the nerveux hearing when suing for damages. It could be a property gestionnaire, handyman or débit partner.

En bref Day: He presented his case perfectly before the judge and the defendant’s attorney. The defendant’s attorney came up with a $2,700 settlement over the alleged $3,000 – Connie jumped at it. The girl couldn’t believe it.

He has already paid and confidently gained a mountain of knowledge. He went to the courtroom and beat a lawyer! Success story of a landlord who trained and is evolving the ancient landlord fonction!
