About two years ago, a tenant and I went to court to settle an issue of back rent. He broke the lease and walked away owing me about 14,000 dollars in back rent. Before the judge, we agreed on a 10,000 dollar settlement. An Order Approving Settlement was entered and he was ordered to pay me 2,000 dollars and was given a year to pay the balance of 8,000. If he failed to comply, I was entitled to a Final Judgment of monetary damages against the Defendant in the amount of 20,000. He never paid the balance and we filed for a Default Judgment which I received in March 2008.
