Generally, a notice is the first step in the eviction process. Either the landlord or our Law Firm can fill out this notice and have it served on your tenant. If our firm is filling out the notice you can be assured that it will be filled out and served in accordance with the law. We now wait to see if the tenant complies with the notice.
After the notice expires, our Law Firm will initiate the Unlawful Detainer action. A lawsuit is prepared by our staff and filed with the court. It is then transferred to the process server for serving. Most tenants are served in 3 to 4 days from when the lawsuit is filed. Thereafter, we obtain a report from the process serving company and we will either fax or mail you a letter regarding service of your lawsuit.
THE DEFAULT PROCESS:
If your tenant has not answered the lawsuit, we will then prepare additional papers for filing with the court. These papers will be reviewed by the court, and they will issue a Judgment for Possession. This generally takes 7 to 10 days.
THE SHERIFF IS ENGAGED:
Once a judgment is obtained; a “Writ of Possession” is delivered to the Sheriff’s office. They will process it and then go out to the property and post a “5 Day Notice to Vacate” on your tenant’s door. After the 5 days, the Sheriff will set up a lockout time where you or your agent will have to meet the Sheriff and have the locks changed. We offer a “Lockout Management Service” which will meet the Sheriff, do an inventory, and will change the locks for you. You will receive more specific information on this service near the conclusion of your case.
PERSONAL PROPERTY LEFT BY THE TENANT:
If your tenant leaves any personal property behind, please contact our office and we will send you a form which explains the legal process for disposing of your tenant’s belonging.
THE MONEY JUDGEMENT:
You will be receiving information near the conclusion of the eviction process for obtaining the money judgement and its collection.
