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 Complaint & Eviction Fees with 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.
Constable Attempts to Serve by Hand
Once the Complaint has been filed, the constable attempts to serve the tenant by hand. Depending on your county and local constable, this can take 1-2 weeks. If the tenant is successfully served by hand, he has 10 days to respond to the court. If he does not respond by 5pm on the 10th day (also known as the end of answer period), you automatically win possession and you may request the writ of possession. This end of answer period will show up in the system as a 5pm court date, but it's not an actual court date; it's just their deadline to respond to the court. You'll receive an automated email letting you know to log back into the website and click "Writ" to continue moving forward.
Constable Serves by Mail
If the constable cannot serve the tenant successfully by hand, he will serve them by mail and you must wait 21 days from the date of mailing. We will update our online system throughout the process so that you know whether the tenant has been served and when their end of answer period expires so that you may file the writ. This end of answer period will show up in the system as a 5pm court date, but it's not an actual court date; it's just their deadline to respond to the court. You'll receive an automated email letting you know to log back into the website and click "Writ" to continue moving forward.
If you are contacted by the court...
If you are contacted directly by the court, it is imperative that you remind the court that you are represented by an attorney and ask them to call our office. After you have done that, please contact our office and let us know so that we may also reach out to the court so that nothing falls through the cracks. More information regarding this can be found in your welcome packet.
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 (sometimes referred to as second papers). In many counties, this must happen very quickly as the opportunity to file the writ expires in just a few days. 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.
Constable Posts the Writ of Possession
After the writ of possession has been filed, the constable will post the writ of possession on the tenant's door giving them 24 hours to vacate.
You Contact the Constable to Schedule the Put Out
After the constable posts the writ, you will need to contact the court directly to schedule the put out.
