(1) Description of Premises. The premises claimed shall be described in the complaint with such certainty that the defendant will be distinctly advised of their location so that possession thereof may be delivered according to that description.
(2) Summons. Summons shall be served not less than two days before the day of trial. The date set for trial shall be not more than 15 days from the date of filing of the complaint unless otherwise ordered by the court.
(3) Continuances. No continuance shall be granted for a longer period than 2 days, unless the defendant applying therefor shall give an undertaking to the adverse party, with sureties approved by the court, conditioned to the payment of the rent that may accrue if judgment is rendered against defendant.
(b) Referral to District Courts for Trial. Any such action filed in the superior court may be referred by the court to a district court for trial when the amount does not exceed the jurisdiction of district court.
