I live in Florida , St LUCIE county, my landlord has filed for eviction even though I have paid all monies due and continues to call me for rent after he has filed and I have paid my rent to the court clerk as the eviction summons directed me to do. The lawyer now says he wants me to pay another 2250$ as a good faith deposit. I don't owe any more money, I don't have any more money. I have given my answer and all receipts of payment to the judge and he's asking for more money. How can he do that, how can I be evicted when they continue to accept my money? the landlord tenant act states that if money is accepted even though there is a discrepancy, the landlord cannot bring a civil case because payment has been accepted. What do I do ? I have until the end of July that my lease is up. All rent is paid, and I have the judge telling me if I don't pay the " extra" I will not get a hearing and may be evicted. If I'm going to be evicted can I get my rent for the month that I have remaining back? Please help me. I have two daughters and o really need your expertise.
