An Experienced Team on Your Side
Eviction proceedings are handled in State Court of the County where the rental property is located. The proceeding is referred to as a Dispossessory. The process starts with the landlord filing a dispossessory claim against the tenant. The Sheriff’s Office or a private process server will serve the tenant with the copy of the proceeding.
The tenant will then have 7 days from the service date to file an Answer. Failure to do so will result in a Writ of Possession, judgment against the tenant for the landlord to proceed with the eviction. Once a Writ of Possession is issued, the landlord may immediately “execute the writ”, or evict the tenant.
