What happens if we agree to settle our case?

Most Eviction Diversion Program (EDP) agreements result in a final settlement order called a “Dismissal With Prejudice Pursuant To Settlement Agreement.” This Order is approved by the landlord and tenant, and then presented to the court for approval. When the order is entered by the court it is a binding court order and must be followed by both parties. If the landlord and tenant complete the requirements they placed in the settlement order, the case is dismissed and no judgment is entered against the tenant. If the tenant fails to pay the agreed amount or follow the order at a later date (for example, move out when agreed to), the landlord can request that the Court enter a Judgment and allow for the eviction of the tenant.
