Hey man, I was told to drop my pursuit of someone who owed a sh**heap of rent ($5,100.) (for numerous reasons the rent went without being paid until me, the cat, came back into the picture.)
If the guy owes a but-tonne, get a good lawyer and go for it. I did, and went against those saying to drop it and move on.
Guess what? The turd forked out all back rent, late fees, and 95% of the atty fees. No kidding.
I think my case is the exception, not the rule. The monthly rent was $1,700 so it was worth chasing for even a month of rent, to me.
Get a good lawyer anyhow.
