I have rental properties in Tennessee and I’m trying to figure out a way to avoid a total eviction reset when a tenant who is in the eviction process makes a “partial payment”.
I've heard that if you write "all rights reserved" on a renters receipt it can protect you if you have already filed an eviction and the tenant sends a payment.
You can put the eviction on "continuance" vs having to start the eviction process all over and you give the tenant a second chance to catch up.
Another option may be to add language into the general property Rules and Regulations Agreement such as, “Once eviction process is started, partial payment may be made by tenant and eviction process, including judgment and possession shall remain in effect until payment is made in full and up to date.
Has anyone ever heard of this or have other solutions? Thanks
