What Do You Mean My Eviction Has Been Delayed? Another Hang Up? Blame All the Other People Who are Being Evicted Too.
When we get your Writ of Possession, we schedule with the Sheriff’s Department to have your tenant evicted as soon as possible. We have our move-out crew schedule with the Sheriff directly because that provides the quickest route to get your property cleared of people, pets, and personal belongings. Clients sometimes feel a bit frustrated because despite their urgency for us to remove the tenant, we simply cannot get it to happen immediately. Why? Most Sheriff Departments stay inundated with evictions, and law enforcement officers can only handle so many properties per day. Each officer who goes to the eviction with the eviction crew must stay until the entire eviction process is complete; sometimes this process is really fast, but sometimes there are animals and people in the home. Animals must be retrieved by local animal control authorities, and people must be removed by another officer. All of these issues can stall out an eviction for hours thereby bumping your eviction to another day. Be assured your eviction will be handled as quickly as it can be handled legally.
We have had our clients try to expedite the process by calling the Sheriff themselves, only to find themselves placed back in line – at the back of the line. So, as I have said many times to many clients - be aware; be patient. Nothing moves as quickly as we would like, but we must keep perspective, and we must keep it legal.
