Can a Landlord take you to small claims court and ruin your credit when they cannot keep strait books and cant figure out which roommate owes what? Also when you have proof of payments.
1 Answer from Attorneys
To answer your question directly, Yes, y a landlord could ruin your credit with a mistaken lawsuit. But, it is doubtful that a single small claims filing would ruin an otherwise perfect credit rating. It is rare for landlords to use small claims to seek reimbursement of past due rent. They can't get an Order if eviction through small claims. They would haveto file an associate circuit case. In order to get advice that matches the correct facts of your matter, you should consult directly with a civil practice attorney in your area. Give then all the facts and documents that you couldn't here, and get some advice as to your options.
