Q: I have a 5 Day Eviction Notice fee of $100. Do I have to pay the fee if I just pay the required amount for the lease?
A: If your landlord has filed an action to evict you, you will be evicted unless you do something to defend yourself in the court that has jurisdiction; and to do so you may have to pay the amount of rent due into the registry of the court--which usually charges some fee for doing so. If you owe the landlord any amount of rent, paying the rent now will probably not stop the eviction--unless the landlord decides to withdraw the case before the hearing.
