Rent Escrow
In order to file a Rent Escrow, first you must give the landlord a thirty day written notice of the problems with your apartment - making sure to keep a copy of this for your records.

You must keep your rent payments current until the thirty days has expired and your problems have not been corrected.

If the 30 days pass without your problems being corrected, you can come to Room 115 in the Hamilton County Courthouse on Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm to fill out your Rent Escrow application.
When filing your application, you must bring:
1) a copy of your thirty day notice
2) your rent for the current month in the form of CASH ONLY.

There is no fee for filing the Rent Escrow application.

After filing the application, you will be contacted about a court date after a filing of a Rent Escrow Complaint, Motion to Terminate Lease or Motion to Rent Abatement.
