There are three (3) sets of paperwork involved in a Summary Proceeding (eviction). Please be sure the address shown on all paperwork is specific, including identifying information for apartments, lot numbers, etc.
Once the Notice and Warrant have been served, the landlord will be notified by mail and instructed to contact the Civil Division to schedule the enforcement/removal.
The Civil Division will not accept a Warrant of Eviction more than two (2) weeks old. If your Warrant has exceeded that time, please contact the Civil Division.
If a landlord is evicting spouses, both shall be listed on all paperwork in the eviction process.
- Tenant(s) and their personal property must be physically removed from the premises described in the Warrant; there is no "lockout." Property shall be stored and not be placed curbside in an effort to protect all parties from loss, theft or damage. The landlord must advise the Civil Division of the location where the property will be stored. Questions regarding the length of time required to store property must be directed to an attorney.
- The landlord is responsible for providing a minimum of four (4) movers as well as sufficient boxes, bags, etc. for moving the property. If the landlord does not have sufficient personnel and an approved storage location at the date and time of enforcement, the eviction will be cancelled and must be re-scheduled.
- Execution of the Warrant must be between the hours of sunrise and sunset. If the Civil Division believes the enforcement will take more than one day, the landlord will be required to pay advanced expenses to cover additional costs.
- Mobile homes have some different notice requirements. Please consult an attorney if you have questions regarding a mobile home eviction.
- If the mobile home is owned by the tenant, it is considered personal property and must be removed and stored at the time of enforcement. If you wish to leave the mobile home and its contents onsite, you must receive court approval. This directive must be part of the Warrant itself, or under a separate Order that is signed by the Judge, before the Warrant can be enforced.
