Its now been assigned to a magistrate so I guess i will have to go and take everything in once I get a court date. Most likely they won't show up sop hopefully I'll get a default judgement.

Many times the tenant will move out the night before the hearing.  Drive by the unit the morning of the hearing to see.  At least 1/2 of all eviction cases are not attended by the evicted tenant.

They have been gone for some time now... this is just mulling through the court system to try to recoup some money now. I doubt if they will show, they didn't for the evict. hearing, but I am going to prepare all of my evidence, photos etc., just in case. Unfortunately I found out after the fact that they have done this before and last time they recieved a default judgment against them. But atleast that means I should get what near what i'm asking for. Then it will be about getting the money from them. Atleast i have a good way to follow her from job to job.

Bad news for me today. Apparently i didn't word something correctly in my original claim and I couldn't file for additional damages without amending my original claim and re-serving them. SO I refiled and now get to wait this all out again. IF they sign the recipts we start the whole 28 days for a reply again and then I have to file for a default judgement again. Its a PITA but hopefully i'll get something out of it in the end.

Things are now back on track. My ex-tenants were re-served and signed for it. So now the waiting game begins... 28 days (less now) and I can go after a default.
Just my luck my new wonderful tenants are being transfered. Hopefully I can get it re-rented as quickly as I was able to last time. I'll keep posting as things progress.

Its a bad time of year to find new tenants in OH.  Maybe you'll get lucky though.  But don't be surprised if it doesn't take you several weeks or more to find a new tenant for the place now.  No one wants to move during December and January in this state.  Let us know how the hearing goes (eventually).

I finally have the judgement .... now to collect. (fingers crossed) Any idea of how to be sure that this is picked up by the credit bureaus??
Also I have a new tenant that SO FAR is working out well
(fingers crossed again)

Make sure that judgement is RECORDED by the clerks.  In some counties this is automatic, in others you have to take a copy over to the county recorder's office.

Third line or so in the case inquiry says:
RECORDED ON VOL IMG , PAGE IMG
I assume that it has been recorded.

Dave did you ever get the Default Judgement ?  Did you have to appear in court again or can it be done on-line?   We just received a judgment against a previous tenant in California and are waiting the mandatory 30 days before enforceing it. 

However our problem is we will be out of the country for the remaining year . Thanks

In ohio I was able to submit a motion for default judgement and did not have to go in. I am now working on getting payment.

I now have a garnishment filed and "May" (not holding breath) see some money in 5-6 weeks.
