Sorry Gary you are wrong!!! Here in MI, you file in District Court. Been through this a hundred times. According to my agreement with credit reporting agencies, I report monthly status of tenants!!! Each late payment is reported as is every on time payment and what this guy is doing is considered a SKIP!! Same as MC or Visa or your Verizon bill. The filing is for eviction and money judgment simultaneously, security deposit is not to be used for last month rent!!! That is the term of our written agreement and we cannot access the security deposit until after the tenant has moved. Therefore - I have never not gotten a judgment for non-payment of rent. Filed already for April rent. Court date is on 4/20/01. They are fast here. They will be out by end of month with judgment on their report for the next 7 years, even after I seize the assets of whatever accounts I need to satisfy the money judgment. One tenant tried this last year and guess who got his income tax refund this year - yup ME!!! And he will have it on his report for years to come to remember how he tried to get away with breaking a contract.... and didn't!!!
