After 6 months of begging our landlord to fix a long list of problems - including a leaking floor, rats, mold and more - we called the city code inspection. We then served him a 7 Day Notice to Withold Rent. He responded with a 3 Day Notice, and then an eviction. We immediately paid our rent into the Court Registry, and filed a Motion to Determine Rent, for all the problems we have had. We continued to deposit rent monthly. He filed a Motion to Release those funds, and at the hearing (for the motions) the judge dismissed our Motion and granted him the funds. We are left scratching our heads while waiting for our trial. Is that legal? I thought that, if a landlord accepts money during an eviction, he waives the eviction. We are still paying into court until the trial is over.
