Legal Question

Asked on: 7/29/13, 8:15 am

I am a landlord who's retaken possession of my rental property, since the tenants abandoned it without paying rent for the month they moved out. I've gone through the whole dispossessory process with the courts.

First, I would like to know if I pursue garnishment of the tenant's paycheck, for what charges, pet fines, fees, unpaid rent and/or losses am I entitled to sue for?

Furthermore, if tenant abandoned with no notice, could I pursue garnishment of tenant's paycheck for all past due rent plus rent for upcoming months that I am out of a tenant until I find a new one since it is their fault the property is vacant now?
