The Writ of Execution gives the landlord the right to retake possession of the property. Once the court has issued a Writ of Take, this document should be taken to the local Sheriff’s office. The Sheriff will need to serve the Writ on the tenant and provide the tenant with notice to move out within 5 days. The Sheriff will give the landlord an exact date and time that the tenant will be required to leave the property.
What do I do after a Writ of Execution has been issued by the court?
