RPA - Real Property Actions & Proceedings
Article 7 - (701 - 767) SUMMARY PROCEEDING TO RECOVER POSSESSION OF REAL PROPERTY
747 - Judgment.
§ 747. Judgment. 1. The court shall direct that a final judgment be entered determining the rights of the parties. The judgment shall award to the successful party the costs of the special proceeding. 2. The judgment shall not bar an action to recover the possession of real property. The judgment shall not bar an action, proceeding or counterclaim, commenced or interposed within sixty days of entry of the judgment, for affirmative equitable relief which was not sought by counterclaim in the proceeding because of the limited jurisdiction of the court. 3. If the proceeding is founded upon an allegation of forcible entry or forcible holding out the court may award to the successful party a fixed sum as costs, not exceeding fifty dollars, in addition to his disbursements. 4. The judgment, including such money as it may award for rent or otherwise, may be docketed in such books as the court maintains for recording the steps in a summary proceeding; unless a rule of the court, or the court by order in a given case, otherwise provides, such judgment need not be recorded or docketed in the books, if separately maintained, in which are docketed money judgments in an action.
