After a Court Orders Eviction

Even after an eviction is ordered by the court, the correct steps need to be followed according to law.

The landlord cannot simply remove the tenant’s possessions, or change the locks. The landlord needs to take the court order to the sheriff, who then posts a notice to the tenant (usually on their door). The notice will explain that the tenant must move, and will clearly state the time they have to do so.

If the tenant does not move within that time, then the sheriff is the one who needs to remove the belongings from the rental unit, not the landlord.
