How soon can I be locked out?

Your landlord must take multiple steps to schedule the eviction. It is not an automatic process and you will not receive an automatic lockout-date notice from court. You must call the court and email the landlord tenant officer to find out in advance.

How soon can the landlord evict me after court?

After a judgment in court, you have at lease 21 days before you can be evicted. Your landlord must:

  1. File the Writ of Possession 10 days after the judgment.
  2. File the Alias Writ 11 days after the Writ of Possession.
  3. Schedule a lockout any time after filing the Alias Writ. This usually takes an additional 7-10 days.
