I am a tenant in an eviction for nonpayment of rent. The landlord has received all monies due to date (in on time payments) though doesn't cash checks since sending the notice to quit . When submitting my answer to the court in June I included an intent to vacate the apt (the 2nd wk of aug). I got a default against me bc I never recd notification of the court hearing. I reopened the judgement with the clerks office and have a hearing on the 13th of Aug which is the same time I am leaving. The LL and his atty have zero contact with me. If I am going to move from the residence do we still have to go to court? On the notification of the new court date it says "motion to open" does that mean this is simply a hearing on whether to reopen the default or not, or is it the actual eviction hearing.
