Whether or not you expect the
tenant to appear in court, take with you into court all the records you
possess on the tenant you are evicting. These should include
whatever is applicable from the following list: rental agreement or
lease, pet agreement, condition and inventory checksheet, waterbed
agreement, correspondence, certified mail receipts, invoices covering
repairs of damage, collection records, notices, photographs, and even a
chronology of the events in your deteriorating relationship.
Such records will strengthen your case much more than anything you are
likely to say in court. Judges do not really want to hear you and
the tenant vent. They want hard-and-fast evidence.
