What should I bring to Court?
There are several documents that are absolutely essential to a forcible case. These documents should be brought to every single court call. These documents include:
- An executed copy of the lease
- A signed copy of your Notice
- A copy of your complaint
- A copy of your proof of proper service on the Defendant
- Any other documents to support your claim against the tenant.

If your claim is for the non-payment of rents, be sure and have a list of payments that have been made by the tenant.
