Received court summons from former landlord for damages to property. Even though we think this is an unfair amount. Also, the former landlord claims to have sent a bill a few months back which we never redcvd maybe due to the change of address. So we would like to make a full lump-sum payment. Reason being, we cannot afford the extra costs - legal fees, court fees, travel fees since we moved to another state. How do I go about negotiating a discount and dismiss the case so I won't have to go to court? please help!
