It is important to observe the following:
The landlord will be given the opportunity to explain his side of the case first. The tenants will then be given a turn to tell the judge their side of the case. After the tenants have completed presenting their information, the landlord may ask the Court to be allowed to respond to what has been said. The judge will not allow you to talk about things that are not relevant.
The judge will normally announce the decision at the end of the trial. If something is not clear it is appropriate to ask the Court for clarification. If the judge wants to think about the case or research the law before making a decision, the judge may take the case under submission. When the decision is made, the Court will send a written decision to all of the parties.
