Acceptance (Supplementary Procedure) 
If the defendant is satisfied with the amount of the damages, he or she may file a sworn statement verifying that he or she is the owner of the property or property rights being condemned and that he or she accepts the deposit as a full settlement for the taking of the property and any incidental damages to the remainder of the property of the defendant. T.C.A. § 29-17-904. The court will thereafter enter a final judgment divesting the property owner of title and vesting title in the condemner. T.C.A. § 29-17-904. If the condemner identifies the amount of the deposit that should be allocated to the various defendants, a defendant may accept that amount in full settlement of his or her interest. [64]
