UNDERSTANDING THE EVICTION PROCESS

Evictions:

  All evictions must begin with a NOTICE. There are several types of notices to choose from. You may not always be able to use the quickest notice available. You must choose one that applies to the situation. There are separate notices for manufactured homes and non-manufactured homes. A standard eviction can cost $100 - $120 from start to finish. Evictions take 10-180 days depending on the type of notice served. 

 ALL NOTICES ARE SERVED NEXT BUSINESS DAY.

 What happens next?

 Our office will serve the notice in a timely manner. You must wait the days specified for the particular notice that was served in order to file for the following step in the eviction process. Some notices require a second notice to be served before filing for the eviction.

When you return to our office, you will be handed a copy of the notice(s) and will be instructed to take it to Justice Court to file for the Summary Eviction. Court requires that their paperwork be typed--Justice Court's filing fee is $49.00. After filing with the court, you will be handed an Instruction Sheet to fill out. You are to file the Instructions to the Constable coversheet with the constable's office, and will need to pay the Lock-Out fees ($42.00 plus $4.00/mile). If you choose not to continue with eviction please contact our office for further instructions. Notices expire after 30 days and will no longer be available for use on a particular eviction. 

Once the order is signed by the judge, our office will receive the signed order and will assign to a deputy that day. The notice will be posted the next business day and we will execute the lock-out for that property the following business day. Locks must be changed at the time the deputy puts the seal on the door. If you need assistance in contacting a locksmith, our deputies can assist. Deputy will contact you between 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. the day of the scheduled lock-out to set-up a time to meet.

If the tenant contests the notice, Justice Court will contact you. If you have questions regarding this matter, contact Justice Court (702-455-7980).

When deputy calls to follow-up with the lock-out, inform him that the tenant has paid and no eviction will be necessary. Constable's Office can not accept cancelation of evictions over the telephone, please contact the Constable's Office for further instruction.

Order to Rescind?

If you cancel the eviction with Deputy Constable, then change your mind, you will have to start eviction process from the beginning.

 

After reading the above information, if you are still unsure how to proceed, you may contact an attorney for legal advice.
