he or she is messing with you, seems like they are a jerk. looks like an objection to your notice. if they have not paid "request trial" its a dispossessory hearing. which in most states you can file on line. Its a straight forward process, file on line they give you a court date u see them in court. if they are not prepared to pay their rent at that time with late fees and lawyers fees they will be evicted. The judge is not concerned with any outstanding repairs if any.  

once you get the ruling and its in your favor in states when it comes time to change locks and if need be remove their belongings from the unit, you can request a sheriff be present if you anticipate any trouble. 

in some states the eviction can happen in the same month. Its not a fun thing but I am sure you have read and heard stories where the tenant jerking the owner around for years with lies, fake promises etc. if you think this is the case with this tenant cut your losses early. 

  1. an objection.

      an objection that an opponent's point is irrelevant or invalid, while granting the factual basis of the point.

Sebastopolfun, I think you should seek legal assistance.
