I was found to have evicted my tenant in bad faith. As a result of mediation, I was given two months to pay $1,200 before interest begins accruing. What are the consequences of paying after my deadline? Can the tenant take further action?
With regards to this situation, if you do not pay the amount owed by the date specified on the Order, there isn’t really a penalty other than the 3% annual interest accruing. However, the tenant could start proceedings to collect from you anytime after that date. Some of the possible methods of collecting include putting a lien on property, or garnishment of wages or bank account. The only advice we can give you is to try talking to the tenant and see if you can come to an agreement to allow you more time to pay.
