My Tenant Was Served With The Dispossessory Warrant By Tack And Mail Service. The Tenant Did Not File An Answer. The Court Says They Can't Issue A Money Judgement.

A dispossessory warrant taken due to non­payment will usually request possession and a judgment for the amount of rent owed.

However, if the tenant served by tack and mail files an answer, the court can award a money judgment.
