Now the Eviction Team goes to work for you
What do they do?
Case Review & Documentation Preparation
As soon as you submit your eviction requests with the required supporting documentation, one of our Team of attorneys will review everything, and once approved, we will prepare the paperwork to submit to the court. We do our best to get this done within 2-3 business days. If we're missing anything, the system will send you an automated email letting you know what we need to proceed.
File Dispossessory & Pay Fees to the Court
After your documentation has been approved, the paperwork has been prepared, and checks have been issued, we send everything to the Clerk of Court in your County for filing. Don't worry about paying up front because we pay the court fees for you and simply invoice them back to you. Our invoices are due upon receipt, but we give you up to 30 days to pay.
Case Number Assigned
As soon as we receive the receipt from the clerk, we will post case numbers in Nationwide so you know that it's been successfully filed. Throughout the process, the system will send you automated updates regarding the progress.
Tenant is Served
Once the Dispossessory has been filed, in most counties, the sheriff will have the tenant served. Depending on your county and local officials, this can take a few days or longer. Once the tenant is served, he has 7 days to respond to the court. If the 7th day falls on a weekend or legal holiday, the tenant is afforded a little extra time to respond. If he does not respond by the end of the 7 days (also known as the end of answer period), you automatically win possession and you may request the writ of possession. You'll receive an automated email letting you know to log back into the website and click "Writ" to continue moving forward.
If the tenant files an answer, a hearing on the issues will be held. One a hearing is held, the court will issue its decision.
Who is my team?
When the Eviction Team receives the request of WRIT of possession we go back to work
You Request the Writ and We Pay the Fees
After you are granted possession, you will need to come back to the website and request the Writ of Possession. It is important that you act quickly and request the writ as soon as it is available so that it doesn't expire. You will receive a reminder the day after court that the writ is available. If you believe it is time to file the writ, and you are unable to do so in the website, please contact your eviction services team immediately so that they can check on it for you right away.
Sheriff Posts the Writ of Possession
After the writ of possession has been filed, the sheriff will serve the writ of possession on the tenant giving them 7 days to move.
You Contact the Sheriff to Schedule the Removal of the Tenant
Generally, the sheriff will supervise the landlord's removal of a tenant who refuses to leave.
