Re: SCT order landlord to pay up, he's refusing...now what??

Amazing info, thanks so much! Theres shockingly little out there on what happens after SCT...I guess most LLs just pay up! I think Debt Collection looks like the cheapest way to go at $800. I need to find out more detail about what they actually do to get the money back though! Thanks again and wil...

don't use a lawyer... at least, not yet. you likely won't get reimbursed by the LL for the (full) amount spent on the lawyer (s15 of state courts act or EJD). get a debt collector... otherwise...
