A stipulation, or stip, is a written document describing what you agree to. It’s official so don’t sign it unless you understand it.
The stip may include things like:
How much you owe
Include a breakdown of the back rent showing the fees.
When you have to pay
The deadlines for paying current rent and back rent.
For example, repairs you need.
What happens if you or your landlord don’t do what was agreed upon. Watch out for a final judgment and warrant.
