No the tenant does not to get to live rent free. Hire an eviction lawyer to remove the deadbeat. The longer you wait the more you lose. --108.89.xxx.xx

You will have to go to bankruptcy court to get permission to do an eviction,hire an attorney who can do it otherwise they will be living there for free --24.25.xxx.xxx

Go forward with the eviction. You may have to stand in line with other creditors for the back rent, but you don't have to provide a rent-free house until they figure it out. I'm wondering what the heck the BK attorney told the tenant? --76.238.xxx.xxx

If you got a judgment of possession in April, why is the tenant still in possession?

You need an attorney who knows both BK and eviction. Do not do this on your own, because there is a good chance you would mess it up!
