A tenant has filed a claim with the court for inconvenience money. We came to an agreement this week that we would offer a part payment – about 80% – to settle out of court. Tenant agreed to this. I made arrangements to go to property tomorrow moring and pay this. Tenant is now saying she cant do tomorrow morning and is insisting I go there tonight – which I cannot and wont do. She has now said that her offer to accept cash and drop claim was only if it was paid by tonight.
My question is, if it goes to small claims can we pay her off in instalments or will court insist on one full payment?
