I was late on rent. Made a verbal agreement with apartment to pay on a certain date. On the date agreed to pay i received a citation for eviction with suit for rent.
You defaulted on the lease by being late but, from your post, it sounds like you timely paid under a verbal extension. You may yet face eviction.
You should know that a landlord does not have to waive default -- accept late payment. Whether your landlord did should be confirmed by a written dismissal of the eviction suit.
