If you have been served with an eviction notice from your landlord for failing to keep up with rent payments, you do not have to move out straight away.

When the landlord gives you an eviction notice, it will include a time period; usually between seven and 30 days. Once this time has elapsed, the landlord must then serve you with court eviction papers. This will act as a summons for you to attend a court hearing that will probably not take place for another seven days. At the court hearing, if you lose and choose not to appeal the decision, you will have another seven days from that date before you have to move.

After that time, if you have still not left the property, the landlord and courts will issue you with a Writ of Possession. Upon receipt of that notice, you have 48 hours to vacate the premises. If you fail to do so, you may risk the police being called to arrest you.

Consequently, you do not have to move out of a property until the above mentioned procedures have been carried out. In addition, the landlord must always give you a written eviction notice if they want you to leave the premises. If they have simply told you to leave and not given you a written document, this will not be recognized by a court.

An eviction notice is not the same thing as a court summons. A landlord cannot evict a tenant until the case has been heard in court. If the landlord fails to follow these steps and tries to evict you with an eviction notice, you should call the police as they are not complying with the law.

The eviction notice has all the information about your eviction. Normally most leases require 30 or 60 days. You can also be charged with daily penalty if you don't act on the notice. Read your eviction notice and lease agreement carefully.

After you get the notice of eviction and it is an order from the court, the landlord give notice to the sheriff that put it on their calendar and then they come to you to move out the same day...so it is up to the calendar of your local sheriff department. However if it is only a complaint for eviction then you have time to answer said compliant that shows on the front page of the notice and it state the hearing date it is usually a process from 45 days to 90 days...after that they get an order from the court ordering you to move out and that when they give it to the sheriff for enforcement.

That information will be stated on the official notification of eviction. It could be an immediate eviction with the Police on hand to enforce it. If you have an eviction notice and you believe that you will be evicted, then my advice is to pack your stuff and get out of dodge before they throw you out on your ear.
