It is important to know how the eviction process goes , because you never know when a friend or a family member might need to know the law on eviction . The person who knows the law will always be in advantage . knowing what you can or can’t do as well as what others can legally do . Being evicted can be a very scary process and some landlords will use the lack of knowledge a tenant has to intimidate the residents into leaving before their time or into simply leaving for no good reason.
From time to time , a landlord has to evict tenants from rented dwelling units. In any eviction process, the landlord must adhere to the following procedure :
- The landlord serves the tenant a written notice allowing three business days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) for the tenant to pay the rent or to vacate the premises.
- If the tenant does not pay the rent or moves, the landlord may begin legal action to evict by filing a complaint for eviction in county court.
- If the court agrees with the landlord, the tenant is notified in writing. The tenant has five business days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) to respond in writing to the court.
- If the tenant does not respond or if a judgement is entered against the tenant, the clerk of the county court issues a writ of possession to the sheriff.
- The sheriff notifies the tenant that eviction will take place after 24-hour notice has been posted.
This whole process is not short but a landlord who knows what he is doing he will do it pretty fast . Best is to avoid such situations but if you do find yourself into a disagreement wouldn’t you wish you had the upper hand for knowing the law ?
