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.
