It takes 2 to 3 weeks before your day in court. After a judgment is awarded, you must wait another 7 days before you can file for the Warrant of Restitution (WRIT). The WRIT is then forwarded to the judge for signature which can take another 7 days. Finally the WRIT is sent to the Sheriff Department for scheduling and execution which can take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks. There is no way to estimate how long the Sheriff process may take as it depends on various things including holidays, weather, and workload. So, in total, the whole process can take anywhere from 45 days to 3 months. Remember, as an eviction company we operate as an extension of you!

Absolutely Not! Even if the utilities are past due you cannot stop paying them or have them turned off. These actions can be construed as retaliatory towards the tenant, especially during an eviction. Turning off the utilities could also stop the eviction entirely in some counties.
Some cities/counties/HOA's will hold you responsible for the items set out on eviction day. The law varies by State, County, and City but in Prince George's County you are able to throw away anything remaining on the corner as soon as 4 hours after the eviction. You are able to do whatever you want with anything left inside your property as soon as the Sheriff clears it and leaves. But the tenant has a right to retrieve their property placed outside for a varying amount of time. As a courtesy, most areas allow the property to remain outside for 24 hours with no penalties. After that time, All Clear recommends using our trash removal services to avoid being fined by the county, city, or your HOA.
