Gwynn Oak, MD asked in Landlord - Tenant for Maryland

Q: I am going to court on Friday to collect my judgement in a tenant case along w/damages post judgement. In Baltimore

Besides before and after pictures, a list of my charges, the lease, communication back and forth with the tenant, is there anything else I need to bring. In addition, since I won the eviction case do I need to have legal representation or will the judge just honor the judgement.

A: You should bring any and all documents that support your claim. Often, that is a copy of the lease, a ledger, photos of any claimed damages, invoices/estimates of the damages and any other ancillary proof that you happen to have.
