When does an eviction become a contested case?
After the eviction complaint is filed the tenant has five days, not including weekends and court holidays to file a response. If a response is filed, the tenant hires legal assistance or pays money into the Registry of the Court, the eviction becomes contested and there is an additional fee due the office. The fee is $250.00 and includes up to one court appearance or appearance at one Court ordered mediation. Additional appearances will be $250.00 each. If case goes to trail the costs will be an hourly fee.
UNCONTESTED non-governmental subsidized residential Tenant Eviction for Possession only.
NO RESPONSE FROM OR ON BEHALF OF TENANT AND
NO MONEY DEPOSITED TO THE REGISTRY OF THE COURT
If you filed the eviction on your own, hired a non-attorney service or management company and now need an attorney, our fees start at $1,500.00 plus additional charges for Appearance in Court or Mediation and any additional fees to the Court and/or Sheriff's Office.
