I have an eviction court date in 3 days. I was given a 30-day notice but my landlord wants a partial rent payment. Would making this payment prevent my landlord from fully evicting me?

Laws vary by jurisdiction, so you’d need to check the laws where you live.

In my US state, once we’re past the “Cure or Quit” notice period, the landlord can accept partial payments and still move forward with a non-payment eviction. During the “cure or quit” period, we cannot accept partial payments because that resets everything to square one and we have to start over to evict.

If you go into court on a non-payment eviction without proof that you have paid the ENTIRE amount due (including late fees) OR that you have a valid payment arrangement agreement with the landlord, you WILL be evicted. The only acceptable defense in a non-payment eviction is “Here’s my proof that I paid” or “Here’s my proof that the landlord agreed to let me pay on the 15th”.
