I recently filed a small claims complaint on two tenants in one apartment that owed for several months rent and were evicted.
The complaint was written as two individual defendants because on the lease it said " If there are multiple Tenants signed to this Lease, all
such Tenants are jointly, severally and individually bound by, and liable under, the terms and conditions of this Lease. A judgment entered against one Tenant shall be no bar to an action against other Tenants"
One of the tenants was just served the SC complaint but the second tenant I haven't been able to locate and I believe he moved out of state.
My question is will the court allow the case to move forward against just one of the defendants or will it delay the process since the second defendant has not been notified of the complaint ?
Not sure what happens in that type of situation.
