Depends on the suit venue. L/T court can only grant possession of the unit, not money damages. The other possible venues can give a money judgment and your LL can enforce it.

The landlord must first seek a judgment. He then may seek to enforce the judgment by asking the court to seize and sell our assets. It is a possisbility - but would take a long time.
